UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres has welcomed the new friendship between President Uhuru Kenyatta and his political nemesis Raila Odinga. Mr Guterres, in a statement, also  endorsed the two leaders’ commitment to work together for sake of national unity.

Mr Odinga and President Kenyatta last week agreed to work together— putting to an end seven months of endless political bickering that had put the economy on the cliff and resulted in several deaths. The two leaders said they had resolved to bury the hatchet for the sake of the country. However, the deal came as US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson visited Kenya, signalling pressure from Washington DC.
