The state opening of Kenya\'s parliament is due to take place in Nairobi today.

It comes a week after President Mwai Kibaki and opposition leader Raila Odinga agreed to share power.

They signed a deal to form a coalition following weeks of bloodshed after December\'s disputed elections.

The first duty of Kenyan MPs\' in the next few days is expected to be voting on legislation that will put into effect the power-sharing deal.
