The Government reacted sharply to US Secretary of State, Ms Condoleezza Rice’s criticism of Kenyan leaders for failing to end their political stand-of.

In a press conference last night, the Government mediation team urged ‘International friends’ not to impose solutions on Kenya.

“Our international friends as we have stated before are welcome to make suggestions and to support the dialogue process but not impose solutions.

They should take care not to legitimise or reward violence, death and destruction. All relevant factors must be taken into account to avoid rush judgment based on incomplete information,” read the statement in part.

Rice, who is on a trip to China, on Tuesday said she was disappointed by Kenyan leadership and Washington would take “necessary steps” if a solution was not reached.
