'It's Hard to Remove a Sitting African President'

Kenyan opposition leader, Raila Odinga, has lost the presidential election for the fourth time in what he calls a "massive rigging" by president-elect Uhuru Kenyatta. In African politics, if an incumbent, however lousy he is with the citizens, is considered good enough by investors and donors, then they are good, however bad the election is. The observers of the elections fell over each other to praise this particular election as an example to the rest of the continent even when a key election official was killed a few days to the election, writes Nicholas Sengoba for The Monitor.
