Kenya's Kibaki open to coalition: Tutu

By Agencies

President Mwai Kibaki is open to the idea of a coalition government to break political deadlock and end turmoil after Kenya's election, South African Nobel laureate Desmond Tutu said on Friday.

"The president was not averse to the formation of coalitions -- but clearly there has to be an acceptance that there is a governing authority in the country," Tutu told reporters after a meeting with Kibaki. He had separately met opposition leader Raila Odinga on Thursday. (Reuters)
