(b) State where there is no war, conflict or the end of war.
(c) Ceremonial handshake between two opposing sides. Example as we saw In 2008, Kibaki and Raila forming a coalition after a heavily disputed elections. Again the former 2018 handshake between Uhuru Kenyatta and Raila Amollo Odinga to end their enemity.
