Last week, President Kenyatta of the ruling Jubilee Party and Mr Odinga of the opposition National Super Alliance (NASA) held lengthy talks at Harambee House before jointly addressing the press where they assured Kenyans that they had put aside their political differences in the interest of uniting the country. After the closed-door meeting, the two told the Nation that they had resolved to work together to bring unity and resolve the conflict.

"We have listened to Mr Odinga". He explained what was discussed.

"It's true our security has been restored", Junet said.

"A more elaborate briefing will be given to the media and indeed the nation in the coming days. We call on the Kamba nation to rally behind this noble historical initiative for the good of our people", he said.

In a joint statement read by Musila on Tuesday morning, the leaders who included former Kilome lawmaker Regina Ndambuki said by putting aside their differences for the good of the country, the two leaders had demonstrated true statesmanship.

On October 15, Mr Kabando and several NASA MPs said they would lead the negotiations to address any disputes on how the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) would conduct the October 26 polls.

The opposition has since suspended its People's Assembly process following the deal between Raila and Uhuru.

The development came as People's Assemblies Organising Committee led by Economist David Ndii announced the suspension of the forums in favour of the inclusivity program as opposed to pursuing a parallel path to inclusivity.

President Uhuru Kenyatta on Monday, March 12 presided over the launch of a doctoral scholarship programme named after him which is fully sponsored by the Chinese Government.
