INTRODUCTION TO KNDR


Kenya faced the biggest crisis in its post-independence history following the General Elections that took place in December, 2007. Set against the backdrop of what had generally been considered historic and peacefully conducted presidential, parliamentary and local polls, the country was soon overtaken by unprecedented levels of violence, following the announcement of the presidential election results. The extent of the devastation which ensued was catastrophic, with approximately 1,300 people killed and over 600,000 displaced, in addition to massive destruction of property. The visit of President John Kufuor, the then Chair of the African Union, to Kenya from 8 to 10 January 2008, resulted in the creation of a Panel of Eminent African Personalities, composed of former UN Secretary-General, Mr. Kofi Annan (Chair), former President of Tanzania, Mr. Benjamin Mkapa and former South African First Lady, Mrs. Graca Machel, to assist Kenyans in finding a peaceful solution to the crisis. Under the auspices of the Panel, President Kibaki’s PNU and Mr. Odinga’s ODM started negotiations on 29 January, 2008 through the Kenya National Dialogue and Reconciliation Committee (the KNDR or “National Dialogue”)
