Azimio la Umoja One Kenya coalition party Raila Odinga is set to jet out of Kenya on Friday for a week to South Africa.
His spokesman Dennis Onyango announced that the former premier will be away for a week.
Odinga is scheduled for a series of meetings in his capacity as the AU High Representative for Infrastructure Development in Africa.
“Mr. Odinga will meet the Chief Executive Officer of the African Union Development Agency (AUDA-NEPAD) Nardos Bekele-Thomas. The meeting will review the progress of the Program for Infrastructure Development in Africa Priority Action Plan 2 (PIDA-PAP2),” said Onyango.
“The PIDA-PAP 2 is a portfolio of strategic projects proposed by Regional Economic Communities and AU Member States for implementation by 2030. It is comprised of sixty-nine (69) regional infrastructure projects in the sectors of Energy, Transport, Trans-Boundary Water, and Information and Communication Technology.”
He added that Odinga will also hold meetings with South African leaders from government, non-government organizations and business sectors.
Odinga is a friend of president Cyril Ramaphosa.
