Uhuru also said that his handshake with ODM leader Raila Amolo Odinga was the best thing that has ever happened to Kenya. 

The President noted that through his friendship with Raila, Kenyans are living in peace.

“When I cooperated with [Deputy President] William Ruto, there was peace in Kenya. And When I greeted [Raila] Odinga Kenyans are living happily together,” he said.

On the war on corruption, Uhuru said that he will not tolerate any government official misusing county resources. 

He also said that governors accused of the graft should not drag his name into their woes.
