Raila Odinga leaves for US and Mozambique

By Standard Reporter | October 7th 2014

NAIROBI, KENYA: CORD leader Raila Odinga will Tuesday evening leave the country for a visit to the US where he will deliver a lecture on economy at Yale University then proceed to Mozambique for an election observation mission.

A statement from Raila’s spokesman Denis Onyango said the CORD leader is scheduled to deliver the Coca Cola World Fund at Yale Lecture on October 9 2014.

The lecture will focus on Africa as the next frontier of global economy and how to make the optimism is realistic.

“Apart from the Coca Cola Fund Lecture, the former PM will also speak to an Economics class on Building Democratic Institutions for Inclusive Economic and Social Transformation. This will be a panel discussion that will also feature H.E. Ernesto Zedillo, former President of Mexico.” Onyango said.

From the US, Raila will travel to Maputo, Mozambique, where he will lead an election observation mission of the Electoral Institute for Sustainable Democracy in Africa (EISA) for the October 15 elections.

This will be the second time Raila will be getting involved in Mozambique’s political activities.

In the 1990s, he worked with the International Republican Institute as a resource person for peace and conflict resolution in the then war-torn country, helping restore stability.
