The principals in the Kenya electoral train wreck, President Mwai Kibaki and opposition leader Raila Odinga, today signed a power-sharing agreement.

For those who haven’t been paying attention to the winding road that led to this agreement, here and here and here and here and here and here and here and here and here and here are some news clips from the past month that will catch you up.
