The statement read in full
''We are concerned about the serious differences regarding the handling of recent
corruption scandals that have emerged between the coalition government partners in
We urge the leaders of the coalition to work swiftly to resolve these differences, which
must not derail efforts to implement critical reforms and move Kenya forward.
The process of moving toward a new constitution has been progressing. Now is not the
time for political posturing or precipitous actions by either side. We stand by the Kenyan
people in wanting to see Kenya's leaders work together in a non-partisan spirit to move
forward on a new constitution, address serious corruption issues, strengthen the
economy, and help resolve regional conflict.
The coalition leaders share responsibility to maintain momentum in the constitutional
review process and to implement the reform agenda. The people of Kenya deserve a
government that successfully addresses the fundamental challenges central to Kenya's
long term interests. Kenya's future should not be held hostage to these disputes''| Article source
