Tanzania’s President Kikwete, who is also the new chairman of the African Union, is Wednesday expected to meet President Kibaki and opposition leader Raila Odinga to jumpstart the suspended peace talks.
Former United Nations secretary general Kofi Annan, who is the mediator of the talks, reportedly said he was suspending negotiations to make certain that a lasting solution is found soon.
This comes after United States Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice criticized both the opposition and the government for failing to end their political stalemate.
The talks have been trying to resolve the ongoing political crisis, which is blamed for a loss of lives and property.
