Will Kenyatta's #StateoftheNation Address Usher in a New Kenya?

Although he did not explain what the pact with opposition leader Raila Odinga means during his State of the Nation Address, President Uhuru Kenyatta has spoken highly of Odinga and described their unity deal as an "exemplar of statesmanship". His unity and reconciliation message echoed throughout the speech, which also urged restrained politics. Is it too little, too late?
