Former UN secretary-general Kofi Annan has told Kenyan MPs that he hopes the governing party and the opposition will reach an agreement on the formation of a cabinet of national unity. Annan says he does not think Kenya will be stable enough to hold a new election for at least a year. He announced that an independent commission will be formed to investigate charges that President Mwai Kibaki won the December election by fraud. The governing Party of National Unity and opposition leader Raila Odinga’s Orange Democratic Movement are holding talks outside the capital Nairobi. (Radio Netherlands)
