The Secretary-General stated: “I congratulate President Kenyatta and Mr Odinga and I welcome this positive development. I am encouraged by the agreement to launch a programme that aims to unite all Kenyans and places the national interest above party affiliation. I urge all Kenyans to unite in support of the shared goals the President and Mr Odinga have articulated.” The Secretary-General reaffirmed the commitment in her earlier statement of 12 February 2018, of the readiness of the Commonwealth to provide support to Kenya as may be required.
