KENYA'S CABINET SACKED!
Kenya's entire cabinet dismissed.
To help illiterate voters, the campaigns used fruit symbols. Kenyan President Mwai Kibaki has dismissed his entire cabinet and deputy ministers after voters rejected a draft constitution in a referendum. Mr Kibaki said he would announce a new line-up of ministers in two weeks.
The result is seen as a protest against Mr Kibaki, and there is speculation it might lead to a parting of ways with with ministers opposed to the draft. Campaigners celebrating the "No" vote have asked their opponents to join them in drafting a fresh constitution. "Please come and join the rest of the nation in rebuilding a new Kenya," the so-called "orange" anti-constitution campaign said in a statement.
The result is a blow for Mr Kibaki, who led the "banana" campaign for a "Yes". The president has made no reference to discussions on a new draft. Opposition campaign leaders called for a cross-party effort to draft a new constitution "now that the people of Kenya have decisively spoken, and in the spirit of genuine reconciliation".
