11:10 am
seemingly sealed agreements are not c. old. it's also hard to predict the activities of the regime the interesting thing is the russian involvement and they're one of the sponsors it's what we can see but it's not a good sign and it's a bit of deja vu. in the process the russians and iranians in the regime are using military force to shape diplomatic process and that's. you know a very good tactic in terms of getting results in many many hours they're willing to escalate or able to do so on the problem of the united states and so i said they're unwilling to escalate and that's the reason why russia and the regime are doing this and i'm afraid the first official numbers in honduras show opposition nato summit on us is slightly ahead of incumbent one orlando have none this in the presidential election both of them earlier said they were leading polls have been

11:19 am
a relisted big project development they said let's wait and see how the election spins out. out on the streets most kenyans are also feeling the effects of an economy that is slowing down their cost of living. stumbled in the last by ideas and now the government has killed its economic growth forecast with this year to five point one from five point nine percent. almost always deep to during election season it happened in one thousand nine hundred ninety seven and in two thousand and seven after a disputed election the economy crashed this time around it was already struggling because of among other things a prolonged drought many are saying that the political uncertainty around the election just made things worse if i was present today i would be you know really in on a privatization program i would be doing much more to stimulate particularly agriculture it's very you know so many people in our economy are dependent on it you get it
11:20 am
working the sense of well being translates very very quickly across the board. many people now hope that the election over the economy will stabilize. but the opposition led by raul is planning more protests and economic boycotts to push for a new vote this may mean one certainty and economic hard times catching al-jazeera nairobi kenya. unless we turn now to zimbabwe and andrew symonds in harare zimbabwe where the new president is embarking on his first week in charge a number of announcements expected today andrew and you were telling us earlier about announcement from the military. yes we'll go wants to see action and certainly he's briefed his security forces to get straight to it in terms of clearing things up this is a joint statement here from the zimbabwe defense forces and security services
