Ruto and Raila met at the late political hero Kenneth Matiba’s home in Limuru when they went to condole the families.
The two were welcomed in the home by Kiambu Governor Ferdinand Waititu.
Also present was Raila’s wife Ida Odinga.
Raila and Ruto are perceived as political arch enemies who have not had kind words with each other since their fallout in 2009.
Raila’s recent handshake with president Uhuru kenyatta also sent shock waves in Ruto’s camp with details of their agreement not divulged.
Matiba died on Sunday while receiving treatment at Karen Hospital in Nairobi
