ODM Leader Raila Odinga met H.E Yogeshwar Varma, the High Commissioner of India to Kenya. While PM, Odinga visited India and met then opposition leader Nenandra Modi who would rise to become the Prime Minister of the world’s largest democracy.
It is not yet known what the two leaders discussed. Under Jubilee, the diplomatic significance of India sub-continent has reduced as the regime concentrates on Asia and the West. The relations between the two countries deteriorated so much that the high commissioner once publicly protested the snub by the Kenya government, despite India being among the top donor nations to Kenya in areas of health and technology.
H.E Varma is also the country’s permanent representative to the United Nations Environmental Programme and United Nations Habitat, both of which have their headquarters in Nairobi.
