25th May 2024

The Government Spokesperson Dr. Isaac Mwaura joined the people of Kisumu County and the Luo Nation in a thanksgiving service in honour of the appointment of Senator Fred Outa as the Kenyan ambassador to the Arab Republic of Egypt.

Hon. Outa will also lead the Kenyan missions in the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan as well as the Kenyan mission in the State of Eritrea.

He commended his good friend, whom he served with in the 3rd Senate of Kenya, as he embarks on his new duty as our top diplomat in Cairo. His appointment is historical in many senses, as the Luo people are said to have migrated through the Nile, which waters Egypt, and they largely depend on Kenyan waters.

The first assignment, given to him by HE President Ruto, is to convince the 3 governments to consider the candidature of Raila Odinga as the 5th Chairman of the African Union Commission.

The Government Spokesman had served with Hon. Outa in the Senate and also with his spouse at the Prime Minister's office.

The Speaker to the National Assembly Rt. Hon. Moses Wetangula was the chief guest. Other leaders present included Minister for ICT & Digital Economy Eliud Owalo, Likuyani MP Hon. Innocent Mugabe,former Kisumu governor Jack Ranguma, former Migori governor Okoth Obado, CAS Hon. Nicholas Gumbo,Hon. Joash Olum, Hon. Kennedy Obuya,Hon. Olago Aluoch, Hon. Prof. Ayiecho Olweny, Hon.
