Mr Odinga has been invited to give speeches at various universities and institutions. He will also hold talks with US government leaders.

His spokesman, Dennis Onyango, confirmed that Mr Odinga would fly out on October 7.

“He will be travelling for an event at Yale University, Connecticut, where he is expected to deliver a speech on October 9,” Mr Onyango said.


At Yale, Mr Odinga is scheduled to meet with the leadership of the institution and lobby on the possibility of expanding its scholarship programmes to more Kenyans.

“The main lecture will focus on Africa as the next frontier of (the) global economy and whether the optimism is exaggerated,” said Mr Onyango.

Mr Odinga is also expected in Columbia for a similar event before travelling to Mozambique on October 12 as an observer of that country’s presidential elections on October 15.
