Azimio Presidential Candidate Raila Odinga and his Chief Cabinet Secretary nominee, Kalonzo Musyoka, are out of the country on private missions, according to sources within their camps.
Musyoka is reported to have left the country on Tuesday evening while Odinga left the country Wednesday morning to DR Congo.
Those close to the two political buddies remained guarded on the matter, only confirming what they referred to as a short trip.
Odinga’s trip comes barely two months after he concluded a trip to the United States of America.
During his US trip in April, Odinga held a town hall meeting with Kenyans in Washington DC.
He also briefed the Kenyan diaspora in the US on the state of the Kenyan nation, preparations for upcoming elections and his post-election plans for Kenya.
In March Odinga flew to the United Kingdom (UK) just hours after he was crowned the Azimio la Umoja presidential candidate on March 12.
He addressed the international community at the Commonwealth Secretariat and the Royal Institute of International Affairs or Chatham House.
At the same time, Deputy President William Ruto cut short his campaigns in Northern Kenya and jetted out of the country ‘on short notice.”
The DP is, however, expected back into the country on Friday to attend the Kenya Kwanza women’s national conference to be staged at the Nyayo National Stadium.
Ruto was expected to campaign in Marsabit and Isiolo today before embarking on another tour of Laikipia county on Saturday.
President Uhuru Kenyatta also happened to be out of the country in Mogadishu, Somalia where he attended the inauguration of Somalia’s new president, Hassan Sheikh Mohamud.
Uhuru’s delegation to the neighbouring country included Defense Cabinet Secretary Eugene Wamalwa and his Agriculture counterpart Peter Munya.
