The fury and agony the speaker’s ruling engendered has let it be known who really made the acrimonious appointments-The Hague six! Kenyans are too aware and awake for that to go without notice. The two principals have an easy option – to get to business again and make it good.

Going by the backroom dealing between Prime Minister Raila Odinga and President Mwai Kibaki, the nomination process had no transparency and as such even an agreement between the two principals would still solve a political problem but not address the constitutional question.
