Mr Waitiki Kamau, the owner of the 930-acre farm in dispute. He said no solution would be found for squatters living on the farm unless he was fully involved in negotiations that have gone on for more than a decade.

Well done Kenyans for keeping peace

The tallying of Presidential polls concluded last night and as expected, the winning camp burst into celebrations. This is natural. Coordinators of the groups celebrating around the country should however keep vigilant so as not to accord criminal elements an opportunity to infiltrate them for criminal activities.

When I drove round Nairobi's CBD at about 7am, all was calm and peaceful. Pockets of celebrating Jubilee supporters were however doing some victory road walk around town. But they maintained peace. Some foreign journalists were lucky to be at hand to capture the early development. One expects that celebrations around town will get 'louder' later today. But we urge those celebrating to observe decorum so as to keep the City space open for business. City authorities and security agencies will however need to keep good watch to avert any excesses.
