US President Barack Obama invites Uhuru and Ruto to White House

US President Barack Obama

 US President Barack Obama has allegedly sent an invitation letter to new Kenyan President Uhuru Kenyatta and his deputy William Samoei Ruto to Washington DC later in the year.
This comes in the wake of the two leaders having earned themselves admiration from observers all over the world after winning the 2013 general elections amid various challenges to have them fall by the wayside.
The Jubilee team defeated Cord Coalition's Raila Odinga to clinch the presidency in the first round. Although the two have been indicted by the ICC, the west was worried over their possible win and had several diplomats warning of 'consequences' should the duo win the race to State House.
  However, with the first peaceful elections to be conducted in the present day Kenya and a peaceful transition to a team allegedly accused of fueling animosity and bloodshed in the year 2008, the International community has changed tune and is now showering praises to the team.
Their inauguration at Kasarani Stadium saw the highest number of African Presidents attend the same, perhaps a clear indication that indeed Kenya is a Sovereign State.
  American Reverend Jesse Jackson, himself a personal friend of Uhuru Kenyatta made extra efforts to have CORD principals meet Uhuru nad Ruto at State House Nairobi.
  He also promised to mend fences between US President Barack Obama and Uhuru Kenyatta, the president of a country that Obama will definitely visit in the near future.
Uhuru and Ruto will hence attend the African Heads of State dinner organised by the White House.
It remains to be seen whether the two will attend the dinner but sources say US would be the last to arrest Uhuru and Ruto since the US is not a signatory of the Rome Statute.
It is said that President Obama wants to personally thank Uhuru and Ruto for a peaceful election and uniting Kenya at a timely need.
