ODM leader Raila Odinga is currently out of the country for a development tour in South Sudan. The Former Prime Minister left the country on Wednesday after attending the ongoing AfriCities in Kisumu and was received by senior South Sudan officials after touching down in Juba.
Today was a busy day for Raila, who is the African Union High Representative For Infrastructure Development after he commissioned 3.6 kilometers Freedom bridge. He was accompanied by South Sudan President Salva Kiir and other senior Government officials.
The bridge will connect Juba to the rest of the region. Raila shared photos commissioning the bridge on Twitter and said it will play a key role in enhancing connectivity and trade in the region.
''A great day for the people of South Sudan as the freedom bridge in Juba opens for business. This bridge will play a key role in enhancing connectivity and trade in our region. It is great seeing the project come to fruition. Africa will surely rise!'' he wrote.
