Kenyan Leader Accepts Poll Defeat

A rare sight on the African continent, but Mwai Kibaki has accepted defeat in the Kenyan Constitutional Reform Referendum. However as my post yesterday outlined, the real winners may be the former ruling KANU party.

And where does the last 2 years of wasted reform leave Kenya? Still with a constitution providing for an over-powerful President, and no progress towards Parliamentary government. It's hard to take positives from todays result.
