Kenya PM warns of crisis over top posts

Kenya PM warns of crisis over top posts

Kenya's prime minister says his country faces a constitutional crisis after the president nominated top judicial and financial posts without consulting him as required by law.
Raila Odinga says he was shocked to hear President Mwai Kibaki had announced late Friday nominees for chief justice, top prosecutor, attorney general and budget chief. Odinga spoke to journalists Saturday.
The prime minister has called on the president to withdraw the nominations or his party will pursue measures to block them, including legal ones.
Kibaki and Odinga formed a power-sharing government three years ago to end violence that followed the disputed December 2007 elections. More than 1,000 people died in that violence.
