The leader interacted with a number of African leaders on the sidelines of the function, among them Rwanda Head of State Paul Kagame.

According to a post on his Facebook page, he also met with the President of the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) Felix Tsishekedi.

The summit saw the African Continental Free Trade Area which seeks to unite the 1.3 billion people in the continent operationalized.

The trade area also seeks to transform the African economy which currently stands at 3.4 trillion dollars.

Raila was appointed to the continental position in mid last year, shortly after his truce with President Uhuru Kenyatta, which laid to rest their initial enmity and political animosity.
