The meeting, whose agenda was not disclosed, renewed a friendship between the leaders. This was evident when their tweets went viral.

 
Kenyan author, lawyer  and columnist, who has took to politics at the heat of the 2017 elections has critisised the meeting between opposition leader, Raila Oding and president Uhuru Kenyatta, describing it as betrayal of the people.
 
“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 cannot be justified,” he said in a statement.
 
Kenyatta and his long-time thorn-in-the flesh Raila Odinga, who is the National Super Alliance (NASA) leader have publicly reconciled and resolved to work together in the interest of Kenyans. They resolved this in a meeting they held at Harambee House Nairobi on Thursday.
 
The meeting, whose agenda was not disclosed, renewed a friendship between the leaders. This was evident when their tweets went viral.
 
According to Kenyatta, the two "brothers" had the opportunity to hold extensive discussions on matters of Kenya.
 
"We have come to a common understanding, an understanding that this country of Kenya is greater thatn any one individual," Kenyatta tweeted.
Odinga said: “the conflict is over” and called on the country to “reconcile and move on.”
 
“Time has come for us to confront our differences because they are becoming too entrenched,” said Odinga.
 
Miguna who presided over the swearing of Raila Odinga at Uhuru Park in Nairobi on January 30, was later deported to Canada. 
“As Raila Odinga and Uhuru Kenyatta toast, hug and laugh in Nairobi, I remain marooned in Canada because I swore the former in at Uhuru Park on January,” he says.
Meanwhile, other leaders in the opposition NASA alliance have distanced themselves from the talks.
 
A statement signed by  Kalonzo Musyoka, Musalia Mudavadi and Moses Wetangula stated that they were not part of the meeting. “While we have always advocated for dialogue, as Co-Principals of the NASA Coalition, we were not privy to the discussions at Harambee House. 
 
They have said they will have a meeting on Monday, March 12.
Odinga, Kalonzo, Mudavadi and Wetangula were the four principals in the opposition NASA alliance.
