H.E Raila Odinga on his meeting with Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi

Today in New Delhi, Mama Ida and I were delighted to be hosted by the Honorable Prime Minister of India Narendra Modi. Kenya and India have benefitted from each other for decades in many sectors and it is our hope that this visit will strengthen development for both our nations.

We spoke on increased Indian investment in Kenya both in Industry and particularly in the health sector but also touched on the Maritime agreement whose aim is to boost transportation, trade and activity in Lake Victoria to see Kenya trade better and more efficiently with its neighbours (via the lake) in East and Central Africa.

MEETING BETWEEN H.E RAILA ODINGA AND PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA

MEETING BETWEEN H.E RAILA ODINGA AND PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA

It’s always a great pleasure meeting with one of Kenya’s most famous sons, President Barack Obama. He spoke very passionately about his foundation and particularly the empowerment of the youth and I commend both him and his sister Auma Obama for the commendable job they have done in building the community in Kogelo.

Always a champion of democracy, President Obama threw his support behind the Building Bridges initiative and pledged his support in helping bring the country together and fighting corruption.

Finally we spoke about ending the stalemate in South Sudan and finding peace for our neighbours. I join the rest of the nation in saying welcome back home Barack!
