Kenya's president and opposition leader pledge to heal divisionsBy George Obulutsa NAIROBI (Reuters) – Kenya’s President Uhuru Kenyatta and opposition leader Raila Odinga promised on Friday to unite the country after elections last year in which around 100 people were killed mainly in clashes between opposition supporters and security forces. The surprise announcement could lower political tension in a country that is East Africa’s richest economy and a key regional hub for security, diplomacy and trade. In a live television address with Kenyatta on the steps of the president’s office, Odinga said the time had come to resolve their differences.
