AU Ends Raila's Mandate As High Representative For Infrastructure Dev't in Africa

African Union (AU) issued an official statement today confirming the termination of Raila Odinga's mandate as the High Representative for Infrastructure Development in Africa.

The decision comes after a rigorous assessment of the current environment in which projects have not progressed as anticipated and costs have overrun significantly. The High Representative will step down immediately with his term ending.

In the statement, AU representatives highlighted Raila Odinga's commendable efforts to lead infrastructure development in Africa, highlighting projects he had championed.

“We recognize and value Raila Odinga’s invaluable contribution to the African Union. He is a truly exceptional leader who has played an integral role in the organization’s development”.

The AU intends to announce a replacement in the coming weeks and to identify new strategies for a better-coordinated, more successful approach to the continent’s infrastructure.
