Former congressman Steve Driehaus tells WVXU he returns home next month after spending six years leading the Peace Corps' efforts in two African nations.

But Driehaus, in a phone interview Monday from Rabat, the capital of Morocco, says he has no plans to jump back into elective politics.

Peace Corps

Former congressman Steve Driehaus of Price Hill, who has spent the past four years with the Peace Corps in Swaziland, is moving to Morocco to head the agency's efforts there.

Driehaus made the announcement Friday on his Facebook page.

After four years of fighting the HIV/AIDS epidemic in Swaziland in southern Africa, Driehaus says he, his wife and children will move to Rabat, the Moroccan capital on the north coast of the African continent.
