Jubilee blogger Pauline Njoroge speaks on getting hired by Raila Odinga
In the spirit of the handshake.
This was after a photo of the two went viral. The virality if the photo can be attributed to the fact that Pauline was once a fierce critic of the former NASA leader and a passionate supporter of President Uhuru Kenyatta.
Pauline disclosed that the reason she met up with the illustrious politician was because of her role in NEPAD where she serves as a communication officer. NEPAD (The New Partnership for Africa's Development) is an economic development program of the African Union (AU) whilst Raila is the AU High Representative for Infrastructure Development in Africa
“I work for NEPAD as a communication officer, a job I have held since September 2013. Program for Infrastructure Development in Africa (PIDA) is one of the programmes that we run. Now that explains the nexus between Mr Odinga and I. If anything, Monday wasn’t the first time I was meeting Mr Odinga,” Ms Njoroge told Edaily.
After sharing the viral photo with the NASA leader, Pauline had indicated that despite their rocky past, they had let bygones be bygones in the spirit of the handshake and Africa’s integration.
“In the spirit of the handshake and Africa’s integration! With African Union’s High Representative for Infrastructure Hon. Raila Odinga on the margins of #PIDAWeek2018 in Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe,” read Njoroge’s post.
