Here is what I will do as African Union’s Development and Infrastructure envoy – RAILA ODINGA clarifies about his new job

Thursday October 25, 2018-National Super Alliance (NASA) leader, Raila Odinga, has for the first time spoken about his new job as African Union (AU) High Representative for Infrastructure & Development.
Speaking during a lecture at Duke University in US on Wednesday, Raila said his first assignment would be to lobby Heads of State across the continent to jump-start stalled multi-trillion Trans-African development projects.
He said he will spearhead the modernization and upgrading of selected Trans-African highway corridors and their missing links.
“One of my main tasks will be to garner political buy-in and ownership of member States as well as ownership of regional economic communities,” Raila said.
The former Prime Minister also said he will use his new position to rally nations to fight rampant corruption as well as champion for electoral justice and democracy on the continent.
He further stated that he will engage “development partners’ and lenders including the World Bank, International Monetary Fund and bilateral “donors” to fund continental projects.
