    Raila Raises Concerns About Ruto’s Foreign Travels

    Published on

    Raila Odinga, head of the Azimio party, criticized President William Ruto for his frequent travel abroad during his first month in office.

    At a rally in Nairobi on October 12, Raila claimed that the government had spent more than Ksh200 million on Ruto’s first official travels to the United Kingdom and the United States (USA).

    After hearing that the new government said there was no money in the treasury, the former prime minister began to wonder where the money was coming from for the foreign trips.

    Since taking office, the President has visited five different nations. A little over a week after being sworn in, on September 18, he made his first travel abroad to attend the burial of Queen Elizabeth II in London.
    After that, Ruto traveled to New York to participate in the UN General Assembly (UNGA).

    The President embarked on his first official trip to Africa on October 6th, when he departed for Ethiopia. He also met with Ethiopian Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed during his tour.

    The president returned from Ethiopia on a plane the day before leaving again, this time to celebrate the 60th anniversary of Uganda’s independence with President Yoweri Museveni.

    The trip to Uganda stirred criticism as many parties questioned why the president would bring along his daughter and son-in-law on such an important trip.

    After thereafter, Ruto went to Dar es Salaam, Tanzania, to meet with President Samia Suluhu in bilateral discussions.

    Since then, Raila has insisted that he is prepared to hold the administration accountable.
