The wave of acrimony and contradictory statements dominated public debate as the week drew to a close with Kenyans left wondering who may be the masters of deceit. As question rose over the conduct of certain public officials three questions remained unanswered: Will Kenyans have 80 proposed constituencies the Andrew Ligale-led team published this week in the running order in which they appeared? Will they be in place in time to be slotted in the 2012 elections programme? And how will the court rule on the two separate suits for and against them now before Chief Justice Evan Gicheru’s team? On Thursday, Interim Independent Boundaries Review Commission, whose draft for publication in the Kenya Gazette was delayed by hidden force(s) in Government until the process was blocked by a court order, also filed a separate court case to counter the one against it by a Nairobi businessman. But what stuck out like a sore thumb in government’s foot was the way Justice Minister Mutula Kilonzo disowned the statement endorsing the Ligale team’s work as within its mandate and constitution given Parliament by his Assistant Minister William Cheptumo on Wednesday.
