Thursday, March 28, 2024 - Former Prime Minister Raila Odinga’s dream of becoming the next African Union Chairperson has received a huge boost after the East African Commission (EAC) ordered Ministers of Regional Integration and East African Communities to start campaigning for him.

In a letter to 8 Ministers, EAC Secretary General, Peter Mathuki urged them to start campaigning for Raila Odinga immediately.

“The purpose of this letter therefore, is to inform you of this development and urge partners to mobilize support for the candidature of Raila Amolo Odinga given his immense experience in leadership and understanding of issues affecting our continent,” said Mathuki in his letter.

Mathuki told the eight ministers that Kenya has officially communicated to the EAC Secretary General of Raila’s candidature for the top AUC position.

Mathuki wrote to Ministers Deng Alor (Sudan), Antipas Mbusa (DRC), Gervais Abayeho (Burundi), Peninah Malonza (Kenya), Vincent Biruta (Rwanda), Ali Mohamed Omar (Somalia), January Makamba (Tanzania) and Rebecca Kadaga (Uganda) to support Raila’s bid.
