Nairobi - Former President Mwai Kibaki has launched reconciliation efforts between president Uhuru Kenyatta and CORD leader Raila Odinga, urging them to work together for the sake of the nation.
The three shared the same space Tuesday afternoon during the funeral of former minister Njoroge Mungai in Kiambu County.
Kibaki, who spoke first of the three, insisted that the two leaders had the key to a succesful Kenya and asked them to work together.
He also insisted that the persistent squabbles between them would only serve to reduce Kenya's capability to grow.
" I ask them two of them, who are humbly here to work together. They should do so for the sake of Kenya, he said.
" The squabbles that we have seen between them will not help Kenya. They will only slow Kenya down as a country and that mus be addressed by them, he added.
Kibaki though, was quick to praise the job done thus far by his successor Uhuru.
" He has focused on development projects and that shows he is heading in the right direction. I am confident he will be a success, he added.
Uhuru on his part, said he would work with Raila.
" My brother is here and as I have said before, I am ready to work with him for the sake of development.
