The former President of UCLG Africa, and former Olkejuado county council chairman, Tarayia ole Kores, was today awarded honorary member of UCLG Africa in Kisumu.

Kores now joins a list of heads of state and government like the former Tanzanian President Jakaya Kikwete, South Africa’s Thabo Mbeki, Ghanaian’s Jerry Rawlings, former Liberia President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf, and Mozambique’s Joaquim Chissano.

Those awarded along with Kores during the ongoing 9th edition of the Africities Summit in Kisumu, Kenya, were former Ouagadougou and Burkina Faso mayors, and former Gabon rime Minister.

The former Olkejuado county council chairman’s award was under the category of former leaders of local governments in Africa.

institutions in addition to former heads of state or government.
