Monday, July 8, 2024 - ODM leader Raila Odinga accompanied Ministry of Interior Principal Secretary Raymond Omollo to Zanzibar where he made a case for his African Union Commission chairmanship bid at the East African Community (EAC) Ministerial Retreat on Peace and Security.

Raila took time to explain to the EAC Ministers why he wanted to be the next AU Commission chairperson.

“I am Africa and based on my experience over the years, I have the ability to go to this institution and transform it,” said Raila

Top on his agenda if elected to succeed Moussa Faki, Raila indicated he wants to promote peace and security initiatives in the continent which he singled out as the most important feature for development.

“There can be no development without peace. AU has a Peace Fund but that peace fund has not been properly developed. Some countries make contributions but it is still very little. We need to expand that fund so that Africans can be able to deal with issues of conflict in the continent themselves,” he added.

Raila’s visit to Zanzibar in the company of PS Omollo comes even as Deputy President Rigathi Gachagua accuses senior security officers from the Ministry of Interior of undermining him.

Speaking in a church service on Sunday, Gachagua claimed that security officers from the Interior docket were sabotaging his fight against alcoholism in the Mt Kenya region.
