The dance party Raila will attend while in US

Mr Odinga arrived in the US Wednesday morning and is set to address the Congress today.

The party which is set to be spread over the weekend, will begin on Friday when the former Premier will be speaking to Nasa supporters at Cococabana Bar and Grill, 2031A University, Boulevard E, Hyattsville, Maryland, between 6 and 8pm.

The colorful fete is being organised by DC Metropolitan ODM chapter.

“This is an opportunity for Kenyans to come and hear from our enigmatic leader who, over several decades, has stood up and sacrificed for freedom, liberty, justice and democracy for all Kenyans,” the group said in a statement to the Nation.

On Saturday, Mr Odinga is scheduled to hold two meetings in New Jersey, courtesy of Nasa USA Team.

The first one is a town hall meeting with the diaspora at St Patrick’s High School Auditorium - 492 Bramhall Avenue Jersey City, NJ 07304 between 2pm and 6pm and it will be an open public meeting, the organisers have said.

Later on in the evening, the former premier will be a guest of honour at approximately Sh10,000 Dinner Dance that starts at 8pm to 1am at the Clinton Manor Banquet Hall 2735 US-22 Union, New Jersey.

“The cover charge of $100 includes food, drink and dance. Because the space is limited, RSVP is required and a payment through Cashapp is encouraged. No payments will be accepted at the door,” Nasa USA Team said in a statement.

Meanwhile, Raila is expected to deliver a keynote address on “Overcoming Kenya’s political crisis and advancing democracy, rule of law and stability”. The crucial meeting will take place at the headquarters of Center for Strategic and International Studies between 9:30am–11am DC time.
