Raila Odinga, the presidential candidate of Azimio la Umoja, met with leaders of the House of Commons in the United Kingdom on Tuesday to discuss economic issues. Kitui Governor Charity Ngilu, former Gatanga MP Peter Kenneth, Suna East MP Junet Mohammed, and other leaders followed Raila. The team addressed ways to stimulate the economy in the face of impending elections throughout the discussion. “As we deal with COVID-19’s economic ramifications, we should see it as an opportunity for an economic revival,” Raila remarked.
“We must rebuild better and guarantee that the electioneering season does not impede the ongoing economic recovery efforts,” Raila stated that restoring Kenya’s economy was their top priority. “This was the basis of our debate with UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s trade ambassador to Kenya, Theo Clarke, in the House of Commons,” he stated. Ten members of both Houses of Parliament also attended the meeting. On Monday, the former Prime Minister arrived in London for a series of high-profile appearances.
He will discuss trade, investment, development, politics, security, and the regional situation with key UK government officials. Raila is the Special Envoy for Infrastructure for the African Union. On Monday morning, Kenya’s High Commissioner to the United Kingdom, Manoah Esipisu, welcomed the ODM leader, who was accompanied by at least five Azimio leaders. Raila will meet with UK Minister of Defence James Heappey at MoD headquarters on Tuesday morning.
