ODM party leader Raila Odinga has arrived in South Sudan,where he will be performing his functions as High Representative for Africa Infrastructure.

"Arrival in Juba, South Sudan prior to the inauguration of the 3.6-kilometer freedom bridge that will connect Juba to the rest of the region tomorrow. Africa is intensifying its infrastructural development," Raila said.

As High Representative for Infrastructure, the Honorable Raila Odinga supports the efforts of the Commission's relevant Departments and the NEPAD Agency in accordance with the Union's Assembly's approval of the Programme for Infrastructure Development in Africa (PIDA).

In this context, his responsibilities include garnering increased political support and development aid from Member States and Regional Economic Communities, as well as instilling a stronger sense of responsibility among all stakeholders on the continent. He would also back NEPAD's attempts to convince development partners to contribute more.

As he fulfills his mandate and builds on the work and leadership of the PIDA Presidential Infrastructure Champion Initiative, Raila pays special attention to the missing links along the trans-national highway corridors identified as part of the Trans-African Highways Network in order to facilitate their development and modernization in Africa.
