He further applauded NASA leader Raila Odinga for agreeing with him to unite Kenyans.
He further requested member of parliament to never again give room for such kind of politics in future by making sure better laws are there to ensure the same.

“Let us shake hands and embrace our neighbours and let us celebrate the diversity that is God’s gift to us,” said Uhuru.
