President Uhuru Kenyatta has gazetted the names of 14 members of a team tasked with advising Government on the unity deal with Opposition leader Raila Odinga.

The Building Bridges to Unity Advisory Task Force has a year to submit a comprehensive report.

In a gazette notice No 5154 dated March 24 and published yesterday, Head of Public Service Joseph Kinyua laid out the task force’s terms of reference based on the joint communique issued by the two leaders after their March 9 meeting.

In their communique, the duo promised to end the "explosive stalemate" following the 2017 repeat presidential election.
