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.

The election season blunted growth in Kenya, East Africa's richest economy and a Western ally in a volatile region.

Hogaamiyaha Mucaaradka Kenya Mr.Odinga ayaa dhankiisa sheegay in la joogo waqtigii la xalin lahaa dhibaatada ama khilaafka u dhexeeyaa isaga iyo Kenyatta.

The two share several similarities including making history as the longest serving political detainees in Kenya, with Odinga leading, after spending nine years behind bars, under retired President Daniel Moi's rule.

Speaking during a media briefing after arriving in Nairobi on Friday evening, Tillerson said the reconciliation of the two leaders was a great milestone as far as Kenya's unity is concerned.

In a statement posted in his Facebook page and on his official Twitter handle, Mr Miguna said Mr Odinga's "erratic decision to betray the fight for electoral justice" can not be justified. "Elections come and go, but Kenya remains", Kenyatta said.

Kenya is the strongest economy in East Africa and an important USA ally.

Kulanka dib Uhuru Kenyatta iyo Raila Odinga ayaa si wada jir ah ula hadlay saxaafadda ka isla markaana balan qaaday in ay bilaabayaan geedi socod dib u heshiisiinta.

U.S. Secretary of State, Rex Tillerson, said on Friday in Nairobi he had shared his concerns with Kenya's President Uhuru Kenyatta about the importance of democracy.

That's not a coincidence, said independent political analyst Martin Andati. "We need to get out of this cycle of just these two men, or a few people at the top, meeting", he said.

Odinga said the opposition had chose to change tactics for the sake of the country's unity.

The senator who is also the senate majority leader however faulted the three Nasa Co-principals - Mr Musalia Mudavadi, Mr Kalonzo Musyoka and Mr Moses Wetang'ula - for complaining that they were not consulted.

Koigi was also in and out of the dark rooms under both Presidents Jomo Kenyatta and Daniel Moi, in the 80's, as a result of his "rebellious and troublesome" nature.

"The US should not be dismissed or discounted".

"It's a really good step towards harmonizing the country", said Brian Wanjoki, a pedestrian.
