NASA leader Raila Odinga on Wednesday hosted Jubilee Party youth leaders who campaigned for President Uhuru Kenyatta during the 2017 general election.

The lot was received at the ODM leader’s Capitol Hill office by their Opposition counterparts as part of the efforts to unite Kenyans after the divisive poll.

“They undertook to bury the hatchet and mount a combined push towards the realisation of the Building Bridges Initiative agenda,” Raila said after the meeting.

In a presser, he called on the youths “to embrace the handshake since they are the leaders of tomorrow.”

“We share certain things of concern and also mutual interests. Youths’ contribution remains significant to the growth of the nation,” Raila said.

He said they discussed various issues affecting the nation adding that the resolutions will change the lives of millions of Kenyans if implemented.

“We exchanged vital ideas on how to realise the goals of the handshake between President Uhuru Kenyatta and myself,” Raila said.

The youths at the meeting asked Kenyans to embrace the handshake.

Daughters of Raila founder Renee Mokaya said: “We had differences during campaigns but we are here to discuss peace, unity and national development.”
