PNU have just held a press conference where they have announced that according to their figures President Mwai Kibaki has retained the presidency after getting 4.5 million votes to Raila Odinga's 4.2 milion votes.
A number of PNU leaders including Amos Kimunya, Uhuru Kenyatta and Raphael Tuju held consultations briefly just before Noah Wekesa addressed the press. I know Wekesa well and he looked visibly shaken as he made this announcement.
This press conference was a big mistake as it clearly shows the world for the first time what State House is thinking. It is clear that the game plan here is to hang on to power at all costs.
Their plan will bring nothing but chaos and somebody needs to talk sense into them urgently. You cannot frustrate the will of the people. Not when Kenyans are in the mood they are in, as clearly displayed in the way they voted.
Kibaki's government is now starting to resemble the Kamikaze-type Pakistan government that seems to have had a hand in the assassination of former premier Benazir Bhuto recently as she campaigned ahead of the General election in that country on January 8th next year.
Kenyans have rejected Kibaki (apart from some from his own community and a few neighboring communities), the honorable thing is for him to go home in peace. Why must Kenyan lives be lost before he gets the message?
