NAIROBI - Prime Minister Raila Odinga has warned that new elections might be the only way to solve an ever-widening rift in the coalition government formed early in 2008 to end the post-election violence that ripped Kenya apart.
Odinga is battling vice-president Kalonzo Musyoka for control of government business in parliament.
President Mwai Kibaki's Party of National Unity says the constitution gave the president the right to appoint Musyoka as head of government business. Odingai is furious, believing it is part of attempts to sideline him.
"I cannot exercise the role of prime minister when I am outside parliament, while a different person assumes my responsibilities," he told his Kibera constituency on Sunday.
The parliament speaker is now expected to issue a ruling on the matter today.
The fight is just the latest crack in a coalition that appears to be falling apart.
Odinga's Orange Democratic Movement has walked out of talks aimed at healing the rift and has said it will boycott cabinet meetings.
Odinga has also criticised Kibaki, calling his style of governing "primitive".
The coalition has been lambasted for bickering instead of bringing about promised reforms. Several corruption scandals have also blotted its copybook.
There are fears that a collapse of the coalition could spark a repeat of the ethnic violence that saw more than 1500 killed and 300000 displaced after Odinga's supporters claimed he had been cheated out of victory in December 2007's presidential elections. - Sapa-DPA
