An opposition lawmaker claimed that Mr. Kibaki and Kenya’s opposition party have agreed to form a joint government in an effort to end the continued violence that erupted in the wake of a disputed presidential election. It is unclear at this time the details of this joint government, and the roles each party would play under such a governance. Both sides stated that they were committed to ending the violence. However, Former U.N. chief Kofi Annan stated that such claims were premature and “jumping the gun.” Annan has been mediating the talks between the two parties.
