Kenya’s former PM Raila Odinga and Uhuru Kenyatta to be honoured with Black
History Month, African Peace Award 2018 in British Parliament London Political Summit this year will honour Kenya’s former Prime Minister Raila Odinga and President Uhuru Kenyatta for their political sportsmanship and adherence to the principle of political tolerance. This follows their Peace Accord Handshake which ended political acrimony and intolerance after Kenya’s election in 2017 which had threatened to divide the country and increase of violence.
These two great men themselves have a long rich history behind them, as both their parents were the founding fathers of Kenyan political and democratic history. It is a great privilege to identify with their latest leadership style which infers immense political maturity.
The summit will be looking at the narrow and broad concepts of political-will to act, and the public-will’s power to react, in the very context of an individual leader, or collective leadership actions in critical political decision-making in governance.
Away from being awarded, London Political Summit has created a special award known as “Raila-Uhuru African Peace Accord Award” which will be given annually to any African leader who embraces peace, values democracy and exhibits high level of political maturity and tolerance.
The awardees will go through strict criteria and vetting. Some of the criteria used will be political tolerance, people-oriented leadership, political accountability and political morality among other vital issues in governance.
Others nominated for London Political Summit are: Rt. Hon. Dr Rebecca Alitwala Kadaga MP,
Speaker of Uganda parliament, Rt Hon. Diane Abbott MP UK Parliament, Prof. John Raftery Vice Chancellor, London Metropolitan University, Her Excellency Ambassador Dr Josephine Ojiambo, Former Secretary General of the Commonwealth, On list as well, Her Excellency Ambassador Mrs Mmasekgoa Masire-Mwamba, Served two terms, from 2008 to 2014, as Deputy Secretary-General for the Commonwealth.
“The only motive that can keep politics pure is the motive of doing good for one’s country and its
people”. Henry Ford.
And to add on this Godson Azu Director of London Political Summit says:
“The paradigm shift in political thoughts and actions around the world in most recent years, has to resonate with the idea that nations should govern themselves, free from external interferences, that defies super-globalization and its current burning issues such as; climate change, disarmament, genetic engineering, artificial intelligence, terrorism, national security, and sovereignty, which requires the attention of both domestic and national politics.”
Political will remains key to drive changes. For more information contact – Medina Ajikawo 07956956652 or Pauline Long 07704193590.
