I beg to differ. We have a Constitution that spells out how we will govern ourselves and so far i see we are following the foreseen path. In fact the question of a caretaker government does not arise, unless, God forbid, the President and his Deputy become unavailable for one reason or another foreseen by the Constitution. Ngabu, you beat me to this question and was thinking of doing a post after i heard the trade unionist, Atwoli, on the news say that the President should meet someone "to end the current political stalemate". There is no stalemate. We have an electoral system to determine who our leader is and I don't think we have exhausted the processes prescribed by our Constitution. The SCoK, the Constitutionally mandated arbiter in case of electoral disagreements, in its wisdom, right or wrong, returned the decision-making to the sovereign people of Kenya and we are on course to make a decision on the 26th. One man in 2007 used violence to get one half of the government between 2008 and 2013. I think to try to use the same "trick" again is stretching his luck...to give in to negotiations with a perpetual sumbua is to set a precedent where any tinpot-dictator will stone or cut/machette his way to power. Kenyans are a proud people who should stand up to see that the institutions they have set up to govern themselves work at all times. If there are any fundamental problems with the formula set by the Constitution then a way is provided to have them addressed by way of a referendum and/or the National Assembly. Ni hayo tu kwa sasa.
