Kenya's 'Presidents' - Kenyatta & Odinga - Meet

President Uhuru Kenyatta has held a surprise meeting with his political arch-rival and National Super Alliance leader Raila Odinga who swore himself in as "People's President." Even though Mr Odinga did not publicly recognise Mr Kenyatta as the duly elected President, only referring to him as "my brother", the handshake that followed their joint statement on the steps of Harambee House was an indication that the closing of ranks between the two most antagonistic political families could be in the offing.
