AU appointment

This is the first international trip President Uhuru Kenyatta and Raila Odinga have taken together after he was appointed AU High Representative for Infrastructure Development in Africa.

AU Chairperson Moussa Mahamat appointed Odinga as African envoy for Infrastructure Development in Africa on the day that the former Prime Minister joined President Uhuru Kenyatta and Deputy President William Ruto during the 54th Mashujaa Day in Kakamega County.

In a statement, Mahamat said the High Representative will work to support and strengthen the efforts of the Commission’s relevant departments.

"This decision is part of the African Union’s drive to expedite the integration of the continent through infrastructure, in order to promote economic growth and sustainable development," Mahamat said.
