Tillerson in Africa: US diplomat 'feeling unwell', cancels Kenya plans

Uhuru Kenyatta and opposition leader Raila Odinga to work together Kenyan president and opposition leader meet in bid to heal divisions
Faye Gross | 11 March, 2018, 01:08

Tillerson, the top US diplomat, praised Kenyatta and opposition leader Odinga for meeting on Friday and pledging to bring their people together after last year's contentious and bloody elections.

"Instead, the two repeatedly invoked their names and personally committed to each other and not to all Kenyans", the ANC leader said.

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

The members of the senate called on all political players to follow suit and play politics that foster unity.

"All the credit" for the meeting went to the Kenyan political leaders, Tillerson said, in response to a question as to whether the US had a role in organising it.

On the NASA side, former Nyatike MP Edick Anyanga said the meeting between Raila and Uhuru has been long overdue.

"My brother [Uhuru Kenyatta] and myself have therefore come together today to say this dissent stops here".

Mr Kenyatta and Mr Odinga met publicly at a funeral service where they shook hands earlier this year, but they did not have talks.

Mudavadi noted that the other three NASA co-principals, himself, Kalonzo Musyoka and Moses Wetangula were "neither aware, briefed, consulted nor invited", to the meeting between Kenyatta and Odinga.

Madaxweynaha Kenya Uhuru Kenyatta ayaa sheegay in Raila Odinga uu yahay Walaalkii, isla markaana ay billaabayaan geedi socodka ay wada xaajoonayaan halka ay dhibaatada iyo kala qeybsanaanto ka timid.

"Where is the problem of having a grand-coalition government since after all this country belongs to all of us".

"Mr. Odinga's unilateral, irrational and erratic decision to betray the fight for electoral justice, the culture of impunity and the flagrant abuse of human rights that have become routine under the illegitimate regime of Uhuru Kenyatta and William Ruto can not be justified", he wrote.

Kenya's President Uhuru Kenyatta (R) greets US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, flanked by his chief of staff Margaret Peterlin (L), at the State House in Nairobi, Kenya, on March 9, 2018.

"The U.S.is glad to see Kenya building investor confidence because that will help in the growth of the economy", Tillerson said. "... You know the West has been very keen on trying to get Uhuru and Raila to meet".

While Andati called the agreement on unification significant for healing Kenyan politics, the devil will be in the details.

"We refuse to be the leaders under whose watch Kenyans lead into a failed nation".
