Kenyan opposition politician Raila Odinga says he remains steadfast in his quest to become the next chairperson of the African Union Commission (AUC), dismissing speculations about leaving Kenya permanently.

Speaking at the Homa Bay County International Investment Conference on Wednesday, February 28, Odinga reaffirmed his commitment to the cause, emphasizing his efforts to garner support from various heads of states. He assured his availability and determination to collaborate with others to achieve their common goals.

Odinga’s resolve follows a meeting with Presidents William Ruto and Yoweri Museveni at Kisozi Country Home in Uganda on Monday. The discussions, which covered Odinga’s candidacy for the AU Commission chairmanship, received strong endorsements from both leaders. President Museveni pledged to propose Odinga as the AU Commission chair, a gesture that Odinga gratefully acknowledged.

In addition to his AU Commission ambitions, Odinga emphasized the importance of strengthening diplomatic and economic ties between Kenya and Uganda. Both leaders expressed their commitment to enhancing cooperation, including efforts towards the formation of the East African Political Federation among the seven East African Community nations.

The meeting also addressed key bilateral issues, particularly in the energy and petroleum sectors. Ruto highlighted the progress made in resolving challenges related to petroleum product flow between Kenya and Uganda. He outlined plans for sourcing imports more efficiently and discussed the urgent need for the construction of the Eldoret-Kampala-Kigali refined petroleum product pipeline.
