Kibaki compared to corrupt predecessor

Gulfnews: : "Nairobi: Speaking on national television Kenya’s election chief has compared President Kibaki his notoriously corrupt predecessor, Daniel Moi, for the swift way in which he was sworn into power. Negotiators gathered at a luxury game lodge to hammer out a deal to end weeks of violence and bloodshed sparked by disputes over the vote.

Meanwhile, on Wednesday a former top regional police chief was arrested on suspicion of financing the torching of homes during violence that has seen more than 1,000 Kenyans die and some 600,000 flee their homes in fear.
