Marende elected speaker of the house

I am glad that is over! So now ODM have a majority in Kenya’s Parliament and should the centre hold this is going to get very interesting. Attendance in the house promises to be high and not just when MPs are voting themselves huge pay increases. ODM’s Kenneth Marende scooped 105 votes to become Kenya’s next Speaker of the National Assembly; a victory which has been met in Nairobi with much tooting of car horns. PNU’s Kenneth Ole Kaparo lost by 4 votes.

Odinga has called for three days of demonstrations to begin tomorrow.
