Azimio party leader Raila Odinga left the country on Monday, November 7, for Egypt, for the 2022 United Nations Climate Change Conference alias COP 27.
In a statement, ODM confirmed that Odinga had left the country and would be attending the conference in his capacity as a member of the African Union.
"Raila Odinga on Monday morning left for Sharm El-Sheikh, Egypt to attend this year’s United Nations’ 27th Conference of the Parties on Climate Change.
"He was invited to address the meeting in his capacity as the AU High Rep. for Infrastructure Development in Africa," read the statement in part.
StateHouse Spokesperson Hussein Mohammed, who accompanied Ruto to the climate conference revealed that the president will make his address between 4:35pm and 4:55pm.
The head of state is also expected to hold bilateral talks with world leaders. Among the leaders he had met on the sidelines include Rwandan President Paul Kagame.
Others are Comoros President Azali Assoumani and Angolan President Esperança Maria Eduardo Francisco da Costa.
Ruto also held talks with African Development Bank President Akinwumi Adesina and lauded AFDB's commitment to supporting Kenya's green energy projects - geothermal and wind.
The president was accompanied by Environment Cabinet Secretary Soipan Tuya, Energy CS Davis Chirchir, Foreign Affairs CS Alfred Mutua and Kirinyaga Governor Anne Waiguru.
Raila and Ruto have not physically met since the August 9 General Election but have been engaged in an exchange of words over the state of the economy of the country.
The former Prime Minister has kept the President on his toes asking him to deliver on the promises he made to Kenyans during the campaign period.
He also took an issue with Ruto over what he described as a witchhunt against members of the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) Special Service Unit (SSU) which has since been disbanded.
