Incumbent president Mwai Kibaki and opposition leader Raila Odinga have met for the first time since the announcement of the disputed presidential election of 27 December, which returned the head of state to power amid claims of fraud. The meeting was facilitated by former UN secretary general Kofi Annan, who is in Nairobi to try to broker a negotiated solution to the crisis that has left hundreds of people dead and hundred of thousands displaced. Further talks are due to take place over the next few days.
The meeting came as new evidence emerged of organised violence targeting members of Kibaki
