Security officers made an attempt to block Raila Odinga’s elder brother, Oburu Odinga while making his way to the VIP dais during the burial of late former president Daniel Moi.
In a video circulating online, Oburu was in the company of his brother Raila and Odinga and his wife Ida Odinga before he was stopped.
However, the issue was quickly resolved as he was allowed through to the venue while the service was ongoing.

Earlier, Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko faced an embarrassment after he was blocked from making his way into the VIP dais.
He was apparently ejected from the main dais where leaders, dignitaries, and the former first family were seated. He was stranded and left outside.
