Raila Odinga left Kenya on Monday, November 7, 2022, to attend the 27th United Nations Conference of the Parties on Climate Change (COP27) in Sharm El-Sheikh, Egypt.
The Azimio la Umoja, One Kenya Coalition Leader was invited to the COP27 conference by Egypt’s President Abdel Fattah El-Sisi in his capacity as the African Union (AU) High Representative for Infrastructure Development in Africa.
During the summit, Raila made a presentation on the impact of climate change on infrastructure development in Africa.
President William Ruto arrived in the Arab country on Sunday, November 6, a day earlier before Raila’s arrival.
At the summit, Raila rubbed shoulders with several African Presidents including Samia Suluhu (Tanzania), Hakainde Hichilema (Zambia), Nana Akuffo (Ghana), Dr Emerson Mnangagwa (Zimbabwe).
Photos appearing to show Presidents Suluhu and Mnangagwa bowing before Raila sent Azimio supporters into celebration as Ruto’s supporters dismissed the kind gesture shown to the ODM leader by African heads of state.
Below are some of the reactions from Ruto’s supporters.
