Concern about State of Kenya's Coalition Government
Assistant Secretary, Bureau of Public Affairs
The process of moving toward a new constitution has been progressing. Now is not the time for political posturing or precipitous actions by either side. We stand by the Kenyan people in wanting to see Kenya’s leaders work together in a non-partisan spirit to move forward on a new constitution, address serious corruption issues, strengthen the economy, and help resolve regional conflict. The coalition leaders share responsibility to maintain momentum in the constitutional review process and to implement the reform agenda. The people of Kenya deserve a government that successfully addresses the fundamental challenges central to Kenya's long term interests. Kenya's future should not be held hostage to these disputes.
