Second Kenyan politician killed this week
by UPI

NAIROBI, Kenya -- A Kenyan opposition member of parliament was gunned down Thursday in a western town by traffic police, the party told media.

David Too of the Orange Democratic Movement was driving from Nairobi when he encountered a police roadblock at the western town of Eldoret, a party spokesman told the BBC. Few other details were available about the incident, the report said.

Tuesday, gunmen killed another ODM member, Mugabe Were, outside his Nairobi home.

The country is embroiled in tribal violence following disputed election results from the Dec. 27 vote. Nearly 900 people have been killed and 250,000 displaced to escape violence, the report said.

Meanwhile, talks brokered by former U.N. Secretary-General Kofi Annan began Thursday in Nairobi with three representatives of Kenyan President Mwai Kibaki on one side and three others for ODM leader Raila Odinga on the other, BuaNews reported.

Tuesday, Annan gave the sides two weeks to come to agreement and one year to get the agreement implemented.
