Uhuru Kenyatta and Raila Odinga Ready To Resolve Differences.

Kenya’s feuding political leaders have announced they will meet to resolve their differences.

President Uhuru Kenyatta and opposition leader Raila Odinga have been at odds since 2017 elections that saw about 100 people killed in clashes between opposition supporters and security forces.

Odinga told national television on Friday “it is time to resolve our differences”, as the two politicians made their first public appearance together since the October presidential elections.

Kenyatta said they “have a responsibility as leaders to find solutions. Elections come and go but Kenya remains”.

He called Odinga “his brother” on Friday and promised “we will begin a process of bringing our people together” after the elections.

The two leaders said in a statement they agreed to set up an office staffed with advisers from both parties, to deal with issues ranging from ethnic divisions to the opposition’s disputes with the 2017 election.

The news came as Rex Tillerson, US secretary of state, arrived in Kenya on Friday afternoon.
