Standing on the tracks

The announcement has gone out by now, the President and ODM head Raila Odinga have agreed on something at last. Forty ministers for all your troubles. Still, there is the little matter of who those will be. Around the country, the public are in the dark, holding on and hoping that whatever decision is made, the country can move on from the crisis and begin to rebuild itself, maybe even to address the stark issues that confront our present and paint a sorry tomorrow. A sigh of relief on the last day of February, but still immobilised, we are waiting to exhale.
