Raila Odinga, the leader of the Orange Democratic Movement, and his high-profile delegation have safely arrived in the United States of America, where they will set up camp for the next few days on a working trip.
According to Raila Odinga’s campaign spokesperson, Prof Makau Mutua, the ODM party leader is expected to address a town hall meeting for Kenyans living in the United States later today (USA time). Following that, he will continue with his commitments.
And now, information has emerged about a senior Mount Kenya politician who was supposed to join Raila Odinga on his trip to the United States but has opted out.
Nderitu Mureithi, the governor of Laikipia County, was scheduled to attend the trip to the United States but opted out due to the recent death of former President Mwai Kibaki. Mwai Kibaki’s nephew is Nderitu.
“Governor Ndiritu Muriithi couldn’t come because President Kibaki died,” Mutua explained, dispelling rumors about Nderitu’s absence from the trip.
