Leaders of the Somali warring factions attending the Eldoret peace talks yesterday differed sharply on how power should be shared in a new civilian government.
Over 400 delegates and 19 faction leaders are participating in the reconciliation talks.
At the same time, Kenya's special envoy to Somalia, Mr Elijah Mwangale, has expressed concern over the differences that have slowed the peace process and called for reconciliation among the leaders.
He said some faction leaders want professionals, intellectuals, civil society and women excluded from the talks.
Mwangale said clan differences and misunderstandings among leaders on the number of representatives in the conference were some of the factors slowing down the peace process.
He, however, maintained that the Inter-Governmental Authority on Development (Igad)) who are the talks sponsors, would like to have an all-inclusive participation in the talks aimed at restoring democracy in war-torn Somalia.
