For many observers, the historical divisions between the Kenyatta and Odinga dynasties and the ethnic groups they represent cloud the promise of Kenya's democracy.

The truce comes months after Kenyans went to two violent elections in the last quarter of 2017.

Mr Kenyatta and Mr Odinga met publicly at a funeral service where they shook hands earlier this year, but they did not have talks.

Mr Odinga said it was "time to resolve our differences".

The announcement came shortly before the arrival of US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson in Kenya.

"We are, however, glad that the President and former PM have taken it upon themselves to ensure that we close that chapter of unnecessary exchange of words at the expense of growth and development in Kenya", he added.

Kenya was plunged into political crisis after the Supreme Court annulled the August presidential election, due to irregularities, and Odinga and his supporters boycotted a second round in October.

"Mr Odinga's unilateral, irrational and erratic decision to betray the fight for electoral justice, the culture of impunity and the flagrant abuse of human rights that have become routine under the illegitimate regime of Uhuru Kenyatta and William Ruto can not be justified", he said in a statement.

Koigi was also in and out of the dark rooms under both Presidents Jomo Kenyatta and Daniel Moi, in the 80's, as a result of his "rebellious and troublesome" nature.

Allies in his Nasa coalition, including his running mate in last year's poll, Kalonzo Musyoka, said they were not aware of the meeting and promised to give a detailed statement later.

Tillerson is on a "listening tour" in Africa. "They have successfully engineered this", said Aly Khan Satchu, an independent analyst in Nairobi.

The meeting did not happen as the result of pressure from Western countries, there was no external pressure on the two leaders from western countries, specifically the USA for the leaders to hold the talks ahead of U.S. secretary of state Rex W. Tillerson's three-day visit beginning on Friday.
