The sons and heirs of the first Republic warm themselves like lizards on the beaches of Malindi. Bobo Craxi and Mrs. Melandri feast on champagne and lobster. Perhaps our national Air Force will go and save them. Meanwhile, within Kenya, the situation is far more serious.
Many Kenyans are demonstrating against the outcome of the latest elections, won by Mwai Kibaki at the expense of the favoured candidate, Raila Odinga. Kibaki is from the Kikuyu tribe, while Odinga is a Luo. These two tribes are massacring each other in full view of the entire world.
This blog has managed to contact Kenyan Nobel Peace Prize winner, Wangari Maathai, telephonically, who is asking everyone to intervene in order to restore peace in her Country.
Politician Colajanni has responded to the call. His statement following the rapes and murders reveals his international stature: «Frankly....we didn’t give a damn. I was with my wife, Chicco Testa and his family, Giovanni Minoli and his wife Matilde Bernabei, Pietro Calabrese and a few other people. Dinner by candlelight at my house on the beach».

"To understand the reason for the very aggressive reaction I need to go to the beginning of the last government and remember that we formed that government with a section that had come from a ruling party and when they came to us we formed a coalition and made a Memorandum of understanding. But the agreement of that memorandum was not according to the people, so there was discontent.
The parts did not agree on the Constitution so we had to announce a referendum.
The final stage was this election: those who had campaigned to despite the government were very surprised when the ECK announced that the government side had won.
There are several reasons why the protest was [formed]. One: the side of ODM has a lot of members of Parliament. By comparison they have almost three times the number, at the moment. Nationally the would have more votes. Second: the results were announced before all the tabs were examined. The number of voters, of registered to vote, are less of the number of votes and therefore some people thought that the vote had been manipulated.
The British Prime Minister, Gordon Brown, had been in touch with the two leaders so there are efforts from the International Community to try to bring the two sides to the discussion and I know that the President would respect the President of Italy and even the opposition would respect the President, they can spoken to agree to speak, to stop the violence, to bring about peace. Would be very hopeful. "
Wangari Maathai
