On the NASA side, former Nyatike MP Edick Anyanga said the meeting between Raila and Uhuru has been long overdue.
Tillerson said the U.S.is eager to engage Kenya in helping its Big Four - food security, universal health care, decent housing and manufacturing - efforts, especially on relevant investments. The meeting came just hours before a visit by U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson.
He also was expected to meet with American diplomats serving at the new U.S. Embassy.
"As a people, we are more determined to forge a united front as we march forward in the path of progress", President Kenyatta said.
He also welcomed the impending direct flights between the US and Kenya, urging Kenya to maintain the security framework it has established to make the initiative a success.
Opposition supremo Raila Odinga and his Nakuru ally Koigi wa Wamwere have in most occasions, despite at times taking different political routes, end up in the same political vehicle.
He said he is keen to see an increasing footprint of US companies and businesses that have chosen to establish their regional bases in Kenya.
He said they had themselves to blame.
He later met with President at State House where he stated the USA was interested in widening its investment in Kenya as well as strengthening the bilateral and trade relations between the two countries.
The two men, who also faced off in a 2013 election marred by opposition allegations of vote-rigging, are vying for power in East Africa's economic hub that plays a key role in the Western-backed fight against neighbouring Somalia's Islamic extremists.
"We have a responsibility as leaders to find solutions".
Kenyatta and his long-time thorn-in-the flesh Raila Odinga, who is the National Super Alliance (NASA) leader have publicly reconciled and resolved to work together in the interest of Kenyans.
Senator Murkomen praised the two leaders and revealed that the process of dialogue started before the Friday meeting.
Mr Odinga is confident that ALL the ills that imperil this nation will be addressed in the programme that is being drawn up, given the overwhelming demand for change that Kenyans have shown in the last few months.
