Uhuru makes new announcement after meeting Raila in church 

President Uhuru kenyatta and NASA leader Raila Odinga met at All Saints' Cathedral on Sunday.

Kenyatta stated that he was open to talks to unite the country and end the current political stalemate.This came after the Head of State and Odinga met for the first time at All Saints' Cathedral Centenary on Sunday since the October 26 election.

Kenyatta was responding to Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby, who mentioned that only through reconciliation Kenya could retain its status as a model nation for Africa“Reconciliation is a supreme gift of Jesus. Reconciliation is so costly it caused Jesus to die on the cross," Archbishop Welby stated.However, after the President extended an olive branch to the former Prime Minister, the latter said he would only hold talks with Kenyatta regarding the electoral injustices committed during the August election and nothing else.

At the same time, Siaya Senator James Orengo warned that they would swear in Odinga as the fifth President of Kenya if Kenyatta was sworn in."This time we are totally prepared and we will not be intimidated by a fake government. We know the constitution and in the next two weeks we will tell Kenyans the way forward," Orengo stated.
