CORD leaders handed 45 minutes to meet Obama

24 July 2015, 19:25 William Korir

Nairobi - CORD leaders will meet US President Barack Obama for only 45 minutes, the US Embassy has said.

The CORD leaders as expected widely will meet with Obama during his visit to the country this weekend.

Also, only four leaders will be allowed to meet Obama in person. They are CORD leader Raila Odinga, Principals Kalonzo Musyoka, Moses Wetangula and NARC Kenya leader Martha Karua.

" The meeting will last only for a 45-minutes with President Barack Obama," a US Embassy official told News24.

Obama arrives in the country any time now.

CORD leader Raila had earlier stated his and the other leaders' agenda once the meeting kicks off.

" The Coalition for Reforms and Democracy CORD welcomes President Barack Obama and his delegation here to Kenya for his first visit since his historic rise to the Presidency," they said in a statement Thursday.

" President Obama’s visit underscores the strategic partnership between Kenya and the United States and the strong US commitment to political, economic and security cooperation with our country. His visit to our country has a special significance for us as a country given his Kenyan heritage".

On what the talks between the two would be about, Raila was not too categorical on the matter, choosing to have a vague approach to it.

" We particularly welcome the opportunity to hold joint talks and discuss a range of issues, including continued US support to Kenya in a range of fields that address the needs of the Kenyan people.

" As a Coalition, we are keen to see a strong cooperation between our two countries, and to advance a broad Kenya-US partnership through expanded political, commercial, and cultural relations.

" We are looking forward to hearing and sharing more about how the United States can partner with Kenya so that Kenya ends up being an anchor not only of prosperity and stability in the Eastern African region, but can also be an outstanding role model for developing countries around the world," they added.

Finally, CORD has asked Kenyans to welcome the US President with all the warmth they are renowned for.

" We call on our people to accord President Obama a befitting welcome. The world over, we are known for our friendliness to visitors. We have a historic chance to put this on display in a significant way. Let us rise to the occasion".
