RAILA vows to construct 6,000Kms road from Mombasa to Lagos, Nigeria, with his new job at AU-This Mzee is a big dreamer

Thursday October 25, 2018-NASA leader, Raila Odinga, has indicated that he would link Kenya to Nigeria via road before he retires as African Union’s High Representative on Infrastructure and Development.

 Raila, who was appointed to the plum job on Saturday, October 20, said he intends to oversee the construction of 60,000kms of highways linking the entire continent as the man in charge of infrastructure development in Africa.

 Speaking at Duke University in the US on Wednesday, the NASA leader said his main goal would be to see the Trans-African Highway project commissioned in 1971 is completed.

  Among key infrastructural linkages Raila highlighted as part of his priorities was a 6,000kms highway linking Mombasa to Lagos.

 “Primary projects will be an 8,000kms highway linking Cairo (Egypt) to Dakar in Senegal.”

 “Another 8,0000kms road will stretch from Cairo and Cape Town (South Africa).”

 “A 6,000kms road linking Mombasa (Kenya) to Lagos (Nigeria) are part of this ambitious project,” Raila said.
