Kenyan President Expected To Announce New Cabinet Soon

In Kenya, President Mwai Kibaki is expected to name his new cabinet any moment now. Sources say he held a final round of consultations on the reconstituted government over the weekend, which included long discussions with his informal group of advisers, consisting of businessmen and old friends. Mr. Kibaki has kept the entire country guessing about who will be included in his government after he sacked all cabinet and assistant ministers nearly two weeks ago. Meanwhile, the opposition, the Orange Democratic Movement, said some members of parliament who are involved in the movement were approached for ministerial jobs but declined the offers. David Kikaya is a professor of international relations at the United States International University of Africa. From the capital, Nairobi, he talks to reporter Peter Clottey.
