Kenya's president-elect Uhuru Kenyatta offered Saturday to work together with his defeated rival Raila Odinga and pledged to serve all Kenyans "without fear or favour."

Kenyatta said that he in particular wanted "to thank my older brother, Raila Odinga, for his spirited campaign" and called on him and other leaders to "join us in moving our nation forward."
