Kenya's parliament opens on Thursday. Given that the party of the candidate who was not named president (despite increasing evidence that he won) has the majority, there's lots of potential for trouble in the Parliament building.

Meanwhile, here's a pretty good article about the situation and how it is different from what happened in Rwanda. I still wouldn't characterize Kenya as "unstable," but there's no question that things now are not good.
