Uhuru, while speaking in Kirinyaga on Thursday asked that Kenyans shun tribalism and instead build the nation. He asked Odinga to work with his government to bring change and development as should county governments.

He also indicated that time for politicking was over as he took a swipe at political analysts appearing for TV interviews up until now.
