RAILA reveals the role MUSEVENI will play in his AU Chairmanship bid after meeting him and RUTO in Uganda – This is huge

Thursday, February 29, 2024 - Former Prime Minister Raila Odinga has revealed what happened during his recent meeting with President William Ruto and President Yoweri Museveni of Uganda.

Speaking during the Homa Bay investment conference yesterday, Raila revealed that he had planned to meet Museveni in advance, stating that campaigns for the African Union Commission chairperson post topped the agenda.

However, he further explained that President Ruto had also scheduled a visit to Uganda on the same day, with his main focus being the recent fallout in fuel importation.

He added that given that the duo was present, he took the opportunity to ask them to support his bid.

The ODM boss also revealed that Museveni offered to back his candidature and be the main man behind his bid.

"I talked to both of them and they agreed to support me. Museveni agreed to support me and he even stated that he would be the one to propose my candidature," he stated.

Raila made the remarks after reports suggested that the ODM boss was the one who orchestrated the Monday meeting.

Various reports suggested that the ODM boss sought to have Ruto and Museveni reach a truce over contentious fuel importation deal given that it would have impacted on his candidature.

Unconfirmed reports also alleged that the duo travelled together using the presidential jet.
