Yesterday, former Prime Minister Raila Odinga met American diplomat Johnnie Carson, famous for the phrase “Choices have consequences” which he made in reference to a possible election of Uhuru Kenyatta as president.
It turns out Carson and Raila are old friends, as seen in this statement by Raila.
Yesterday, I had a fruitful meeting regarding my Pan African Foundation with my good friend Ambassador Johnnie Carson at the Woodrow Wilson Center in Washington DC. The former long serving Assistant Secretary of State for African Affairs offered significant meaningful advice on the modalities of setting up such a Foundation for real and tangible benefits for Africa as a whole.
