ODM through it's secretary general Edwin Sifuna are proving that BBI doesn't gurantee that there will be no post elections violence in the near future. Imagine it's only a constituency by election but the complains arising even before the winner is announced, there will be protests and riots.

Interior CS Fred Matiangi is running the State Department of Interior from outside the bounds of democratic civility which requires recognition that there can be truth and fairness on the other side. He has been accused of making a mockery of the system that tolerates him, forgetting that he too can be eaten.
