Raila Odinga’s tenure as AU High Representative for Infrastructure comes to an end


Raila Odinga’s term as the African Union High Representative for Infrastructure has ended as the African Union Commission (AUC) transferred its infrastructure duties to the African Union Development Agency – NEPAD.

AUC Chairperson Moussa Faki congratulated Raila for his contribution during his tenure, acknowledging his leadership and command of infrastructure issues.

The move comes amid calls to have Raila stripped of international duty due to recent rallies that some Kenyan legislators believed were destabilizing the country.

The announcement of Raila’s departure came as a surprise, and it is uncertain who will take over the infrastructure development duties within the organization.

The African Union Development Agency-NEPAD has now been given a full mandate to implement the Continental agenda on infrastructure, reflecting the increasing focus on infrastructure development across the continent.
