PROBABLY EASIER TO JUST ACCEPT THE VOTE COUNT NEXT TIME:

Kenyan leader and opponent to meet (Jeffrey Gettleman, January 8, 2008, IHT)

For the first time since Kenya exploded into election-related violence that has killed more than 400 people, the president and the top opposition leader have agreed to meet, both sides said Monday.

Mwai Kibaki, the president who won re-election last week after a deeply flawed vote count, invited Raila Odinga, the top opposition leader who said he was cheated out of victory, to talks on Friday; Odinga indicated that he would go, if certain conditions were met.
