We have loaned RAILA ODINGA to AFRICA – LUOs brags after he landed a high flying job with African Union (AU)

Tuesday October 23, 2018- A section of Kisumu County Assembly Members have said National Super Alliance (NASA) leader, Raila Odinga, will not retire from politics despite being appointed as African Union envoy.
On Saturday, Raila Odinga who is also the Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) party leader was appointed as AU’s High Representative on Infrastructure and Development for Africa.
Speaking on Monday, Kondele Ward MCA, Joachim Oketch Swagga, said that the former Prime Minister will not exit the country’s political stage any time soon, because "without Raila there’s no politics in Kenya." 
“His appointment means he does not only represent Kenya but the entire African continent.”
“We have just loaned him to Africa, but he still belongs to Kenya,” Swagga told journalists.
Oketch‘s sentiments was echoed by his Railways Ward counterpart, Pastor David Arao.
Arao said that Raila’s new appointment does not mean that he should retire from the Kenyan political scene.
“Others are making noise that Raila should now retire from Kenyan politics.”
“Raila has been given this post because he is the leader of ODM party,” Arao said .
“This new appointment now gives him a bigger mandate to serve his people even better.”
“I am certain that if he was not ODM leader, he would not have gotten this position,” he added.
