Maybe the tribunal is still possible.  The ODM has thrown its support behind a bill that will set up a local and independent tribunal to hear the cases in regards to the 2007 post-election violence.  Of course, Prime Minister Raila will not place his full support behind it.  Being the leader of ODM, it would be nice to hear him support the bill.  Understandably, he does not want to ruffle feathers with the cabinet too much.  As far as I am concerned, he does not have to support it publically if he is willing to work behind closed doors and ensure the passing of the bill.
