4 days ago, 16:30
The fresh 'bromance' between President Uhuru Kenyatta and opposition leader Raila Odinga is certain to come at a cost for some individuals.
Having hogged headlines for the not so positive reasons in recent times, President Kenyatta and Mr Odinga put aside their differences this past week with a promise to work together in a development that caught many by surprise.
Bloggers - Both the President and the opposition leader had invested a great deal in a team of online bloggers, whose main responsibility was to spin information, and counter any information from the 'enemy' camp.
With the main protagonists now hugging in public, this class has been effectively rendered redundant.
Media - The mainstream media too, without doubt, benefitted a great deal from the stand off pitting the President and the former Prime Minister.
Odinga who spilled the beans on a number of corruption scandals within government to the public via the media.
Politicians - Starting with Deputy President William Ruto, who analysts believe has been left in a precarious position.
