In what is seen as a conciliatory tone and approach to the rising political temperatures in in the country, Raila Odinga in a surprise and very stunning move, placed a phone call to president Uhuru Kenyatta last week before the head of state flew to the united states for the US-African Summit . Here is the phone call conversation as leaked by our private sources

UHURU KENYATTA : Good Afternoon My Brother, How are you doing ?
RAILA : Doing good . How is your Milk business fairing on ?
Uhuru Kenyatta : Hahahaha….My business is doing well apart from some common business challenges . How is your Gas business doing ?

RAILA : Yes, that is what Leadership is all about
Uhuru Kenyatta : The opposition is also very tough nowadays , but it is good t0 have a performing opposition…Atleast Kenyans will see both the government and opposition are working to help the ordinary Mwananchi
RAILA : You are flying out for the US-African Summit ..
Uhuru Kenyatta : Coughs ….
RAILA : Speak to the USA and tell them to do something about the advisories, they are hurting the tourism industry
Uhuru Kenyatta ; Yes…We have many issues we are planning to raise as a country among them fiddling ties, USAID Issues and suspension of its American Peace Corps programmes in Kenya and Kenyan foreign policy
