Former Prime Minister Raila Odinga received Head of State treatment in Accra Ghana when he attended the funeral for former UN secretary general.

Kenyans said that the former premier was given an Aide De Camp (ADC) when he arrived as a man in full military uniform was seen walking behind the peoples’ president.

He was accompanied by his sister Ruth Odinga, speaker of the senate Ken Lusaka and Sabina Chege. Ford Kenya leader and NASA principal Moses Wetangula was also in attendance.

Koffi Annan passed on in Switzerland after a short illness. His memory is dear to Kenyans as he was among the international leaders who brokered the peace deal leading to the National accord in 2008 after the post election violence.

He served as the UN Secretary General from 1997 to 2006 and was part of various peace building initiatives within the UN. He died at the age of 80.
