Raila Meets Museveni At Statehouse Entebbe Hours After Visiting Salva Kiir, Reveals Their Discussion

The Azimio La Umoja One Kenya coalition presidential candidate Raila Odinga on Thursday met with two East African presidents.

The ODM leader toured Uganda and held a meeting with President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni at Statehouse Entebbe. Odinga revealed that they discussed issues to do with the East African community and efforts that should be put in place to enhance cooperation within the community and specifically between Uganda and Kenya.

"We walked down memory lane to discuss the shared history of our countries aimed at forging stronger ties moving into the future.

That formed the core of a pleasant discussion with President Kaguta Museveni at Statehouse in Entebbe, Uganda," he wrote on his official Twitter handle on Thursday night alongside photos of the meeting.

Earlier, the former Prime Minister had visited South Sudan and met with President Salva Kiir. He was invited to open a bridge in Juba that is deemed to be the door opener to East Africa's economic hub.

"It's always a pleasure meeting South Sudan's President Salva Kiir Mayardit. I am happy at the strides they're making regarding infrastructure and their willingness to cooperate even more robustly with the rest of Africa. We wish him and the people of this nation all the best," he said.

Raila Odinga is one of the frontrunners in the August elections. His main rival is Deputy President William Ruto. He will resume his campaigns after jetting into the country. He took a break from the succession politics immediately after choosing his running mate; Martha Karua who has been the only one on the ground.
