Political analysts have noticed that H.E. Mudavadi is from behind the scenes doing for UHURU govt what he did for Moi govt as finance minister when the Kenya shilling was being badly battered with foreign currencies.
Moi not only made Mudavadi the youngest finance minister to negotiate with the Breton Woods institutions, World Bank, IMF and all KENYA’S top trading and lending partners to reschedule loans pay up periods and cancellation of some debts.
That is what we are witnessing today. For the last two months, Mudavadi has had talks with all leading Kenyan donor and trading partners. Mostly in private, Mudavadi has talked to all E.U ambassadors, British, South American, Asian and today American envoys.
After the talks, we have seen reports that the huge debts that Kenya owes have been rescheduled on payments.
Today the Interim US Ambassador to Kenya Eric Kneedler, paid him a courtesy call. They engaged on a wide range of issues touching on matters #USKEPartnership and how to build on the over 55 years of friendship between Kenya and the US on matters security, health, education, trade and much more.
Such meetings cannot happen without the blessings of the head of state.
To Kenya, the involvement of Musalia Mudavadi in KENYA’S FOREIGN trade PARTNERS is a plus.
