Addressing journalists after the meeting President Uhuru said the meeting was aimed at ironing our differences which threatened the unity of the country.

He says the meeting begins a new chapter and process of unifying the country, calling for support from all stakeholders

Meanwhile Odinga said the time was now to forget the past differences and disagreements, to move forward as one nation.

He said they have agreed to stop any dissent immediately and not to allow the country’s diversity to kill their nation.
