Boston - Africa's leaders should work together towards the continent’s unity, says former Prime Minister Raila Odinga.
He said the unity should respect human rights and dignity, economic prosperity, national unity and homeland security and urged the African Union reject its members who are killing democracy, hence driving away investors from investing in the continent, Daily Nation reports.
According to Raila, Botswana, Senegal, Ghana, South Africa, Tanzania and Namibia are some of the African nations that are enjoying the fruits of investment from foreign investors.
Raila, who was delivering a lecture at Boston University in Massachusetts, also wants the number of Kenyan youth who qualify to be considered to participate in President Obama’s new Young Leadership programme increased.
Through the programme, Africa’s most promising young leaders are able to visit US universities annually to exchange ideas and also get trained in public management, business and civic leadership.
