ODM leader Raila Odinga has called on the US to lead the world in finding the coronavirus solution since they have the manpower needed.
In a tweet, that he recalled his stay in Germany studying in 1965, the leader has stated that the only solution to revive the economy is the countries standing in unity as it was done in recovery during the World War II.
‘’The US, in tandem with Europe, can once again bring the world to one table and lead it into recovery and reconstruction. Collectively, they have the experience, the technology, and the institutions to lead this process: if they can summon the will and a sense of debt to the world,’’ he stated.
The leader has called on global cooperation and solidarity during this period of the COVID-19 pandemic as more countries seek to open the economy.
‘’After the initial shock, countries are weighing up reopening their operations, including international travel and tourism. This move needs to be accompanied by a new resolve: that the international system that emerged from the devastation of World War II should be strengthened, not undermined,’’ he said.
He has resonated that currently the world has been taken back in 1945 where the economy was crushed.
‘’Today, the whole world stands where Europe was in 1945. Europe recovered then thanks to massive international assistance. That same attitude of cooperation and solidarity is needed now more than ever before,’’ he states.
