For the first time in many months, President Uhuru Kenyatta and National Super Alliance leader Raila Odinga have shared the same podium.
The two, who are rivals as far as presidential contest is concerned have been engaging in political tussle for the last few months, and will be locking horns in the October 26th repeat presidential election, after the August 8th poll was invalidated by the Supreme Court earlier this month.
The two on Friday put their differences aside to share a platform at the burial ceremony of former Nairobi Mayor Samuel Mbugua, the father of former Nairobi Woman Representative Rachael Shebesh, at his Marion Farm House home in Kiambu.
President Uhuru Kenyatta and the former Prime Minister have held hard stances ahead of the repeat of the presidential election, with Raila insisting that his demands must be met by the electoral commission before the election is held afresh.
Kaimbu Governor Ferdinand Waititu, Kirinyaga governor Anne Waiguru, Joyce Laboso of Bomet, Nairobi Senator Johnson Sakaja, Kiambu Town MP Jude Njomo, former Nyadarua Governor Waithaka Mwangi and former Nyandarua woman representative Wanjiku Muhia are some of the leaders attending the burial.
Raila and the late Mbugua's family have been friends for long. Mbugua was a long Raila Odinga led ODM party member for many years.
Speaking during the ceremony, Raila described Mbugua as a committed, hardworking and a patriotic leader.
