After the famous handshake the two leaders have been working closer something that has brought peace and stability in the country. It has also been observed in parliament where by those of opposition and in government work hand in hand as compared before handshake.
Tribal politics started way back during president Jomo Kenyatta and Jaramogi Oginga which lead many deaths and displacement of peoples. Since then there has been tension in the country during every elections.
The worst was the 2007 skirmishes that happen after elections which lead to loss of lives. The country was so divided that world leaders had to intervene.
President Uhuru Kenyatta will be in history as the first not only in Kenya but in the world to allow an opposition leader to be his successor.
