Kenya: Mediation talks going well

Kenyan President Mwai Kibaki has expressed satisfaction that the mediation talks spearheaded by former United Nations Secretary General Kofi Annan are going on well. Speaking on Saturday at State House in Nairobi during a meeting with Ugandan Deputy Prime Minister Eriya Kategaya, Kibaki said he was confident that a sustainable solution to the current political situation in the country would be found. Kategaya, who is also the Ugandan Minister for East African Community (EAC) Affairs, briefed President Kibaki on developments in the region, citing the resignation of the Tanzanian Prime Minister, Edward Lowassa, as among the reasons why the EAC Heads of State meeting scheduled for Saturday had to be postponed. The Tanzanian prime minister resigned over a corruption scandal involving a contract between his office and a U.S.-based firm. President Kibaki and the Ugandan Deputy Prime Minister agreed that there should be further consultations before a new date for the meeting is set.
