Madaxweynaha Kenya oo la kulmay Raila Odinga

Kenyan President Uhuru Kenyatta on Friday held talks with opposition leader Raila Odinga and pledged to set the country on a path of healing and reconciliation after a fractious electioneering period.

The shocking statement is possibly to decrease the political pressure in the richest economy in East Africa as well as the center of regional security, diplomacy and trade.

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.

This interview was the first one to combine the two politicians since five years.

"We have a responsibility as leaders to find solutions".

"We believe that there are actions that need to be taken in Kenya and that they need to correct certain actions like shutting down independent TV stations and threatening the independence of the courts", he said.

Buccaneers ink Mike Evans to five-year extension
Evans was a second-team All-Pro in 2016, and has twice caught 12 receiving touchdowns in a season. The news was announced on the Buccaneers Twitter page.

The truce comes months after Kenyans went to two violent elections in the last quarter of 2017.

Kenya is the strongest economy in East Africa and an important United States ally.

Kenyatta was sworn in for a second term in November after an extended election season which saw the Supreme Court nullifying an August presidential poll.

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

Political analyst and writer Patrick Gathara said such a dialogue is still needed despite Friday's meeting. It does not bear the imprint of NASA Summit as it ought to be.

"This is a purely domestic initiative", Mr Odinga's spokesman Dennis Onyango said.

Trans-Pacific Partnership signed
Other countries have to do the same, and at least half of the TPP members must ratify the agreement before it comes into force. Canada and Mexico are exempted from the controversial measure that will go into effect on Friday next week.

The senator who is also the senate majority leader however faulted the three Nasa Co-principals - Mr Musalia Mudavadi, Mr Kalonzo Musyoka and Mr Moses Wetang'ula - for complaining that they were not consulted.

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.

"The US should not be dismissed or discounted".

The two - who, after their meeting, appeared together to give separate statements to the press - acknowledged the country was heading in the wrong direction.

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

Busts of Gandhi, Ambedkar defaced
According to a report on NDTV , miscreants poured paint on Ambedkar's bust in Tiruvottiyur area of Chennai on Wednesday night. Some people claimed that they saw the accused hurling a stone at the statue before fleeing, an official said.
