SEPTEMBER 12, 2018. –
POSTPONMENT OF HON. RAILA ODINGA’S TRIP TO US.
On advise of Duke University in Durham, North Carolina, which was to host
him from 16th to 19th September 2018, Hon Raila Odinga has postponed his visit to the US. The visit was to begin on Friday, September 14, 2018.
The postponement is due to the extreme weather conditions building up in US state of North Carolina.
Duke University advised that an extremely powerful hurricane, Florence, is expected to land on the North Carolina coast early Friday. The University is therefore on concerted effort to weather the storm.
The university said it is forecast that Durham will remain under extremely dangerous weather conditions from Thursday through Sunday and has cancelled classes from Wednesday afternoon through Sunday.
Under the circumstances, it was agreed that Mr Odinga’s lecture be postponed to next month. Mr Odinga who is currently in Ghana for the burial of former UN Secretary General Dr Kofi Annan will return to the country from Ghana instead of proceeding to the US.
