The message was delivered to the opposition leaders on Monday at the Villa Rosa Kempinski hotel.

Both Raila and President Uhuru Kenyatta have already pledged to ensure a peaceful election next year.

Uhuru and Raila made the promise when they attended an event in Nairobi to mark the 38th anniversary of mzee Jomo Kenyatta on Monday.

The President said Kenyans would at no time again shed blood because of political competition like what happened in the 2007 election.

"We are all Kenyan; we are one people of one nation, political competition should not divide and create enmity among us," he said.

Raila echoed Uhuru’s calls, saying Kenyans should never again fight because of political competition.

"Political competition should not bring enmity between our people. As we get into campaigning, never again should we shed blood because of political competition," he said.
