Abstract:This article analyses the National Rainbow Coalition (NARC), 'the coalition of all coalitions', in the context of the 2002 Kenyan elections. It discusses the pre-election patterns of political coalition in Kenya and the manoeuvring of key political figures between the different parties before the elections; the factors that inspired NARC's formation; key problems the coalition forces are now facing, including power conflicts among politicians, the difficulty of managing and coordinating the government's policy agenda, and the emergence within the alliance of opposition blocs along ethnic lines; and NARC's governing record in the context of the various political and economic reforms it has undertaken to date.
