Mudavadi Makes 3 Trips in Under a Week as Foreign Affairs CS

Prime Cabinet Secretary and Foreign Affairs CS, Musalia Mudavadi, has embarked on his third international trip in less than a week since assuming his role as Foreign Affairs CS. 

The latest leg of his diplomatic trips will see him touch down in Geneva, Switzerland, where he is scheduled to participate in a high-profile event on the sidelines of the Executive Committee of the High Commissioners Program (ExCom 2023).

Mudavadi’s first diplomatic trip happened on Thursday, October 5, mere hours after taking the Foreign Affairs office, as he jetted off to Uganda. 

“H.E Dr. Hon Musalia W Mudavadi has departed for Kampala, Uganda this morning for a one day official visit. During this visit, The Prime Cabinet Secretary will convey a special message to His Excellency President Yoweri Museveni from His Excellency President William Samoei Ruto, outlining shared vision for deepening the ties between Kenya and Uganda,” a communique from the Prime CS’s office read.

The next day, on October 6, Mudavadi travelled to  Rwanda, where he met with President Paul Kagame to discuss areas of cooperation between the two nations. 

“The discussions will primarily focus on strengthening cooperation within the member states of the East African Community, fostering unity, and promoting shared prosperity among the two nations,” Mudavadi said.

Now, barely two days later, Musalia Mudavadi heads to Geneva, where he will engage in high-level discussions with the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees, Mr. Filippo Grandi, and the US Assistant Secretary of State for Population, Refugees, and Migration, Julieta Noyes.

 He will also deliver a key note speech at a high level event themed  “Camps to Settlement: Socio-economic Hubs for Integrated Refugee Inclusion in Kenya”.

“The objective of the high-level meeting is to enable participants gain an understanding and appreciation of the transformative approaches for refugees inclusion, and their role in promoting just, inclusive, peaceful and prosperous societies,” a stetement from Mudavadi’s office read.

On Wednesday, October 4, the Prime CS was appointed the Foreign Affairs CS in President Ruto’s cabinet reshuffle.

He replaced Alfred Mutua who was transferred to the Ministry of Tourism & Wildlife.
