Apart from the challenge of achieving cross-party consensus on a new constitution, the Kibaki administration faces long-standing problems inherited from his predecessor—a sluggish agriculture-based economy, rundown infrastructure, poverty rates exceeding 50 percent, endemic corruption, spiraling crime, and a heavy burden of disease, including human immunodeficiency virus/acquired immune deficiency syndrome (HIV/AIDS). In addition, Kenya has seen growing ethnic tensions between coastal Muslims and other Kenyans about the former’s perceived exclusion from power. Also, new acts of terrorism in Mombasa alarmed authorities in November 2003, prompting travel advisories by Western governments. The early months of the Kibaki administration witnessed much progress, with the introduction of universal free primary education, the adoption of anticorruption measures, and a cleanup of the judiciary. International financial institutions, which had suspended development assistance in previous years, gave the new administration an early vote of confidence by resuming aid. Already by 2004, however, donor countries and agencies were alarmed about the slackening efforts to combat high-level corruption and to pursue legal action against Moi and others of the Moi era. The resignation in February 2005 of Kenya’s competent and honest anticorruption tsar prompted the United States and Germany to cut back on aid. Britain, the largest foreign investor, deplored a resurgence of graft as a major threat to much-needed economic and social reform.
