He said some leaders even lost their seats because they joined them in calling for talks between Uhuru and Raila to avoid chaos.

Their final statement in February pronouncing that any dialogue can only be held on a basis that recognises Mr Kenyatta as the validly elected President of Kenya was outrightly opposed by Nasa.

Opposition supremo Raila Odinga and his Nakuru ally Koigi wa Wamwere have in most occasions, despite at times taking different political routes, end up in the same political vehicle.

The announcement came shortly before the arrival of US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson in Kenya.

"Kenya calls on the U.S.to strongly consider the proposal made to have a surge operation in Jubba Valley region, which was made nearly three years ago, in order to root out al-Shabab", Kenyatta said.

"As Raila Odinga and Uhuru Kenyatta toast, hug and laugh in Nairobi, I remain marooned in Canada because I swore the former in at Uhuru Park on January", he says.

While political violence did not come close to that which followed the 2007 vote - when over 1,100 lives were lost - the disputed elections led to the deaths of over 100 people, majority shot by police.

"This is a purely domestic initiative", Mr Odinga's spokesman Dennis Onyango said.

Political analyst and writer Patrick Gathara said such a dialogue is still needed despite Friday's meeting. I understand that Mr. Odinga has further stated that the "conflict is over" and called on the country to "reconcile and move on".

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

A statement signed by Kalonzo Musyoka, Musalia Mudavadi and Moses Wetangula stated that they were not part of the meeting.

The meeting did not happen as the result of pressure from Western countries, there was no external pressure on the two leaders from western countries, specifically the USA for the leaders to hold the talks ahead of U.S. secretary of state Rex W. Tillerson's three-day visit beginning on Friday.

Tillerson will meet both Kenyatta and Odinga. "They have successfully engineered this", said Aly Khan Satchu, an independent analyst in Nairobi.

"It's a really good step towards harmonizing the country", said Brian Wanjoki, a pedestrian. "That is the only way this country will go into the election on October 26".
