Tillerson: Political Reconciliation in Kenya a 'Very Positive Step'

President Uhuru Kenyatta and NASA leader Raila Odinga

Uhuru Kenyatta and Raila Odinga spoke on national TV after holding their first public meeting since the poll.

With continued black outs and unstable energy transmission systems, Kenya's President Uhuru Kenyatta has called upon investors to exploit opportunities in power transmission in Kenya.

""The 'bridges" Raila Odinga and Uhuru Kenyatta are talking about and intend to build will turn Kenya into an authoritarian and despotic Kenyatta and Odinga Monarchy".

Kenyatta was sworn in last November for a second term after winning a repeat presidential election last October 26 that Odinga boycotted.

Doorashadii guud ee Kenya ayaa markii hore la qabtay bishii August ee sanadkii 2017 waxaana ku guuleystay Uhuru kenyatta, balse Maxkamada sare ayaa amartay in dib loogu celiyo, iyada oo sheegtay in guushii Mr Kenyatta ay wax isdabamarino badan hareeyeen.

"The time has come for us to resolve our differences".

Khilaafka ka dhashay Doorashadii Kenya ayaa la sheegay in ay ku dhinteen 150 qof.

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

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

Johnston said weak Samsung demand was bad news for rivals such as Apple as well as suppliers like Broadcom, Qualcomm and others. If true, then expect this one critical upgrade to shift next year - when Apple is rumored to launch the feature on its iPhones.

About 150 people were killed in the aftermath of the disputed election. "Because the electioneering period has left us divided ... supporters of both sides".

"We really want to give them the credit".

The Big Four agenda include increasing manufacturing contribution to the economy from 9 percent to 15 percent, achieving universal access to health insurance, achieving food security status and building 500,000 new homes.

The Kenyan government shut down three television channels in January on the day that Odinga took a symbolic presidential oath in a mock inauguration.

Tillerson hailed the announcement during a joint news conference with Kenya's Foreign Minister Monica Juma in Nairobi.

He said he is keen to see an increasing footprint of USA companies and businesses that have chosen to establish their regional bases in Kenya.

That's not a coincidence, said independent political analyst Martin Andati.

The leader of the Amani National Congress, an affiliate party of the NASA coalition, said the opposition coalition would not abandon its push for electoral justice and reforms in the country despite the truce by Uhuru and Raila.
