Tillerson says Kenya should not stifle media or threaten courts

Tillerson is expected to hold several meetings in the country, including meeting with President Uhuru Kenyatta on topics such as trade, global terrorism and emerging issues after the 2017 general elections.

Odinga, who has refused to recognize Kenyatta as president, paraphrased US president Abraham Lincoln.

Secretary Tillerson says the USA will seek to work with African nations, providing them with incentives to improve governance and meet their long-term security and development goals.

Mr Odinga's and Mr Kenyatta's fathers were allies in the struggle for Kenya's independence from British colonial rule and then became adversaries.

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.

In a statement posted in his Facebook page and on his official Twitter handle, Mr Miguna said Mr Odinga's "erratic decision to betray the fight for electoral justice" can not be justified.

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

One lawmaker said Kenyatta, who is in his final term, and Odinga, who turned 73 in January, may be keen on securing their legacies with the new found unity of goal.

He also expressed hope that the new beginnings would see Kenyans and development take centre stage and "not using tribal cocoons to bargain for positions". "Because the electioneering period has left us divided ... supporters of both sides".

Another man, Philip Ndung'u, also seemed encouraged by the leaders' meeting. "I think the leaders want to say to [Tillerson], 'Look, we've buried the hatchet, we've moved forward".

Mr Odinga boycotted the repeat election in October, saying adequate electoral reforms had not been made. Observers feared further division would follow the provocative action and the government's crackdown on independent television and the opposition.

United States Secretary of State Rex Tillerson arrived in Kenya on Friday evening for a three-day official visit amid tight security in the capital, Nairobi, and its environs.

Political analyst and writer Patrick Gathara said such a dialogue is still needed despite Friday's meeting.

"The meeting must have been come out of pressure from the USA secretary of state", Andati said.

While Andati called the agreement on unification significant for healing Kenyan politics, the devil will be in the details. "We refuse to be the leaders under whose watch Kenya slid into a failed nation".
