President Uhuru Kenyatta has indicated he will reach out to opposition leader Raila Odinga should he win the repeat presidential election

The President,who is celebrating his birthday Thursday, said, as a responsible leader, he may reach out to Mr Odinga as a way of unifying the country.

He acknowledged the country is grappling with tribalism, even as he reiterated that participating in an election or not is an individual’s right which must be respected.

“As a responsible leader you must reach out and that is my intention,” Mr Kenyatta said of the initiative which he said would happen after the elections.

The Head of State, who was accompanied by First Lady Margaret Kenyatta and his mother Mama Ngina Kenyatta expressed hope that the outcome of this election will bring to an end the political acrimony that has been witness in the country in the last few months.

“It’s my hope and wish that the country will move forward after this election,” he said.
