Raila Odinga with President Uhuru Kenyatta

Nasa Resistance Movement (NRM) self-declared General Miguna Miguna addresses the media at Okoa Kenya offices on January 24, 2018.

The Governor hailed the two leaders for their courage in uniting the country after a prolonged divisive electioneering period that saw Odinga lead the opposition in refusing to recognize the legitimacy of President Kenyatta.

Kenyatta and his long-time thorn-in-the flesh Raila Odinga, who is the National Super Alliance (NASA) leader have publicly reconciled and resolved to work together in the interest of Kenyans.

The three co-principals on Friday released a joint statement saying they were kept in the dark about the Friday meeting between President Kenyatta and Odinga at Harambee House.

Between July 2017 to the present, Uhuru Kenyatta and William Ruto have murdered more than 380 innocent civilians in cold blood.

President Kenyatta and Raila Odinga pledge to end row over 2017 elections as U.S. secretary of state arrives for talks.

The Washington top envoy later held talks with President Kenyatta at State House in Nairobi, where he reiterated USA commitment to Kenya on trade and security.

"I have reaffirmed and the president as well has reaffirmed Kenya's commitment to the values of democratic governance, constitutionalism, the rule of law, and human rights", Juma said Friday.

Madaxweynaha Kenya Uhuru Kenyatta ayaa sheegay in Raila Odinga uu yahay Walaalkii, isla markaana ay billaabayaan geedi socodka ay wada xaajoonayaan halka ay dhibaatada iyo kala qeybsanaanto ka timid.

"The 'bridges" Raila Odinga and Uhuru Kenyatta are talking about and intend to build will turn Kenya into an authoritarian and despotic Kenyatta and Odinga Monarchy.

He stressed that the "reconciliation" betrayed the principles for which a banned political group, the National Resistance Movement Kenya (NRMKe) was established. As such, I can not support it. "Instead, the two repeatedly invoke their names and personally commit to each other and not to all Kenyans", he said.

"The NASA Summit will do a thorough audit of the MOU and undertake soul-searching on whether Kenyans were taken for a ride on not by this MOU".
