Kenya's president and opposition leader pledge to heal divisions

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.

"NASA is an idea owned by Kenyans which will survive and outlive any one individual", the Amani National Congress leader said.

The president said the government's initiative known as the Last Mile Connectivity, meant to connect as many Kenyans as possible to electricity, is still ongoing and therefore presents opportunities for the private sector.

Mr Tillerson praised President Kenyatta for reaching out to NASA leader Raila Odinga, saying that was a major milestone in consolidating national unity.

Mr Kenyatta and Mr Odinga met on Friday morning and pledged to work together for the good of Kenyans.

He said they had shown a commitment to working for all Kenyans, regardless of party, to take "the long journey that is necessary to restore the country, eliminate these divisions that are creating obstacles to Kenya's future".

About 150 people were killed in the aftermath of the disputed election.

Mr Odinga said it was "time to resolve our differences".

He also told the Kenyan government that it should not threaten the courts.

"We really want to give them the credit".

He added that the USA looked forward to seeing the successful implementation of the Continental Free Trade Area (CFTA) because it offers a big market in which the U.S. wants to engage.

United States Secretary of State Rex Tillerson arrived in Kenya on Friday evening for a three-day official visit amid tight security in the capital, Nairobi, and its environs. The Supreme Court earlier nullified an August presidential poll and ordered the October re-run.

Odinga refused to recognize Kenyatta's win; in January, he held a rally where his supporters symbolically inaugurated the opposition leader as president.

For many observers, the historical divisions between the Kenyatta and Odinga dynasties and the ethnic groups they represent cloud the promise of Kenya's democracy.

He said the security situation is still dependent on AMISOM and Somalia partners, and that the planned UN/AU withdrawal of AMISOM by 2020 needs to be carefully reviewed.
