Uhuru,Raila held talks just hours after Trump agreed to meet Kim Jong - and Kenyans are in disbelief

Coincidence or not?

This is the question Kenyans have been trying to come to terms with after Kenyan President Uhuru Kenyatta met face to face with Opposition leader Raila Odinga hours after US President Donald Trump agreed to meet with North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un.

In what was a rare show of unity, Uhuru and Raila sought to put aside their differences and agreed to work together to unite Kenyans.

Trump on the other hand agreed to meet his South Korean counterpart in May setting the scene for an unprecedented encounter between two nations that only recently threatened to wipe each other out.

"He (Trump) will accept the invitation to meet with Kim Jong Un at a place and time to be determined," said White House spokeswoman Sarah Sanders.

Coincidence

Kenyans on Twitter had interesting insights regarding the two sets of circumstances which they termed 'coincidental.'

However, some read foul play in the Kenyan leaders' encounter arguing it was a mere 'PR stunt' ahead of US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson's visit to the country later on Friday.
