US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson cancels activities in Kenya

Odinga said Kenyans "can not remember why and where they disagreed in the first place".

In what is seen as an about turn to the stand he and his co-principals took when they lashed out at Odinga for what they termed as the highest act of betrayal, Musyoka said he has been championing for dialogue since previous year.

"I am cheering for the success of Kenya", he stated.

On the streets of Nairobi, Kenyans also welcomed the leaders' agreeing to work together.

U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson on Friday held talks with Kenyan President Uhuru Kenyatta and assured him of Washington's commitment to Kenya on trade and security, a statement said.

"We have come to a common understanding, an understanding that this country of Kenya is greater thatn any one individual", Kenyatta tweeted.

The Kenyan leader said the long-standing mutually enhanced security and military collaboration between Kenya and the US has played a big role in counter-terrorism, especially in the fight against al-Shabaab in Somalia.

They said in a statement they have agreed to establish a new office staffed by advisers to tackle the divisions ranging from opposition complaints over the election to corruption and tensions between ethnic groups.

"As we invite more investors into energy generation, I would like to call on the private sector to take advantage of opportunities in the energy transmission", said Kenyatta when he addressed a business delegation from France in Nairobi on Tuesday.

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

Tillerson arrived in Nairobi on Friday, and met with President Uhuru Kenyatta. The Supreme Court earlier nullified an August presidential poll and ordered the October re-run.

While political violence did not come close to that which followed the 2007 vote - when over 1,100 lives were lost - the disputed elections led to the deaths of over 100 people, a lot of them shot by police.

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