Raila roots for infrastructure to bail out Africa

Davos – Prime Minister Raila Odinga has made a strong appeal
for investment in infrastructure to facilitate trade and economic
integration as a way out of the grinding poverty in Africa.
Addressing a panel at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland,
Odinga said the absence of trans-continental and regional road networks
had made it difficult for Africa to trade with itself, forcing nearly
all African countries to scramble for the same markets in Europe and
other parts of the world.
Odinga was speaking at a panel on Transformation in Africa that
included Presidents Jakaya Kikwete of Tanzania, Jacob Zuma of South
Africa plus Ethiopian Prime Minister Meles Zenawi.
