Raila Jets Out of the Country


  • Orange Democratic Movement leader Raila Odinga quietly flew out of the country on Friday, November 20. 

    His close allies stated that he flew out to Kinshasha, DRC, for an official tour as the African Union’s High Representative. 

    “He is in Lubumbashi, DRC for an infrastructure conference on the inter-link projects. 

    “He is attending the event which will culminate in a series of consultations with local and regional players on the running plans on Inga Dam,” his spokesperson Denis Onyango stated.

    Reports added that he was also accompanied by his lawyers. 

    Odinga, later on, confirmed his tour, stating that he was taken on a tour of key projects in the DRC. 

    “The Inga Hydropower project remains one of the key infrastructure projects within the entire African Union. I had a discussion on its importance and progress with the Governor of Haut- Katanga, DRC, Jacques Kyabula, in Lubumbashi this afternoon,” Odinga tweeted. 

    Earlier reports had alleged that his plane schedule included a trip to Israel for a medical check-up. ODM Chairman John Mbadi refuted the claims 

    “The former PM is not in Israel. This is not true. He is also not meeting with DP William Ruto as alleged. This is just a conspiracy theory that the two could be meeting after the planned signature launch on Thursday was suspended,” Mbadi stated. 

    DP Ruto also flew out of the country on Wednesday, November 18. 

    He met with former Nigeria Vice President Atiku Abubakar in Dubai, UAE, on Friday, November 20.

    Among those who accompanied the deputy president was former Mombasa Senator Hassan Omar.
