Raila jets to Zimbabwe to officiate AU meeting

 

Raila Odinga jetted to Zimbabwe to officiate an African Union (AU) meeting, his office said. Odinga, who is currently African Union’s High Representative for Infrastructure Development, is going to open a meeting of the Programme for Infrastructure Development in Africa at the Victoria Falls on Monday.

Odinga was appointed to the AU job last month, ending months of speculation that he was set to join President Uhuru Kenyatta’s government on an unspecified role, in what had raised eyebrows from within and outside government.
