The Standard
reports that Chief mediator and main force behind 2008 power-sharing deal, Dr Kofi Annan, said there was little interest in assessing the progress made since the post-election violence. Prime Minister Raila Odinga echoed this sentiment.

PM Raila highlighted the importance of the law, which was enacted to reform the electoral process, but made it clear that the responsibility lies with Kenyans to carry out peaceful elections.
