Politicians trade accusations of electoral malpractice, raising tension while damaging the credibility of the electoral process. Some candidates resort to strategies which brought Kenya to the brink of political breakdown in 2007-08. Strong statements from interested parties such as the United States, Britain and former United Nations Secretary General Kofi Annan have failed to calm passions and only deepened the divide between the two main coalitions, whose candidates are pretty evenly balanced.
