Row over Muthaura statement on deal



10. March 2008


A fresh row erupted on Monday over the power sharing agreement signed by President Kibaki and ODM leader Raila Odinga just a day before parliament begins debate on the bills seeking to legalize the agreement.

Head of Public Service and secretary to the cabinet, Francis Muthaura, said the agreement by the two leaders to share government appointments on a 50-50 basis only applies to cabinet positions.

But ODM quickly denounced Muthaura’s comments claiming they were aimed at frustrating the peace accord.
