A no-show

President Uhuru Kenyatta was on Monday conspicuously absent at the opening of the 4th Annual Legislative Summit in Kisumu.

He along with his deputy William Ruto and special AU envoy Raila Odinga were expected to grace the occasion but none of them showed up.

Senate Speaker Ken Lusaka, however, opened the event himself and in attendance were a majority of the Senate.

Kenyatta's whereabouts remained unknown as Odinga was engrossed in the planning of the Afro Champions structure event that is set to run for two days.

"Good jobs and businesses go to countries and regions with first-class infrastructure. And so tomorrow, we are convening the first of a kind meeting in Nairobi to come up with practical plans to raise money from within Africa for Africa’s infrastructure," remarked Odinga.

According to the Lusaka, the meeting held in the lakeside city is aimed to make an evaluation of progress made and identify gaps that can be addressed through legislation in tandem with the spirit of our Constitution.
