Raila to open a democracy event in South Africa

25 September 2013, 09:21

Nairobi - Former Prime Minister, Raila Odinga, is on Thursday scheduled to officially open a pro-democracy summit in South Africa.

Odinga is slated to preside over the eighth annual symposium of the Electoral Institute for Sustainability of Democracy in Africa in Sandton, Johannesburg.

Odinga and Moses Wetangula, were scheduled to leave the country later on Wednesday morning for the three-day conference that will focus on issues pertaining to democracy and coalitions in politics.

The event comes on the back of Odinga advocating for a parliamentary system of governance in an attempt to eliminate alleged electoral fraud of numbers in national elections and in the both the national assembly and the county assembly.

This move has however been opposed by members allied to the ruling party, Jubilee, which has consistently been accusing the former premier of seeking political relevance after losing the elections earlier in the year.

Before the loss, he was in a coalition government with the ruling party following inconclusive elections in 2007/08.
