A fierce critic of President Robert Mugabe, Kenyan Prime Minister Raila Odinga plans to attend the upcoming congress of Zimbabwe's MDC, the party.

Odinga was Kenya's opposition leader before joining President Mwai Kibaki in a 2008 power-sharing deal following contested elections that sparked tribal violence.

A similar deal was later agreed in Zimbabwe by MDC leader Morgan Tsvangirai and his long-time rival Mugabe.

MDC spokesperson Nelson Chamisa said Odinga would be "the guest of honour" at party's Apri 30-May 1 congress in Bulawayo.

Other politicians from across Africa are also expected to attend.

This will be the first time that Odinga visits Zimbabwe since being appointed prime minister.
