Kenya Embassy ‘not aware’ of Raila and governors’ US meeting
Speaking to the Nation through her secretary, the acting Kenyan envoy to Washington Jean Njeri Kamau said the embassy was not aware of any meeting to be attended by governors from Kenya. “We therefore have no comment on the matter,” said Ms Kamau.
Mr Odinga is set to lead a team of recently elected Cord governors to a meeting organized by the Network for Development of Youth in partnership with Summers Dodge International Group.
However, the planned meeting has raised eyebrows in some quarters. On Tuesday, David Ochwang’i, the president of the Kenyan Community in Atlanta Association (KCAA) told the Nation it was peculiar that no governors from other political parties were attending the meeting. “Why couldn’t they hold the seminar in Kenya and invite the facilitators? Isn’t that more cost effective?” he added.
On Monday, Sam Osamba, one of the organizers of the event, told a media briefing in Dallas that the main objectives of the summit was to introduce the newly elected governors to practices and techniques in handling challenges in devolved governments.-nation.co.ke
