Raila Odinga forced to intervene as organizers attempt to block his brother Oburu

ODM Leader Raila Odinga was on Wednesday forced to intervene as a security guard at Mzee Daniel arap Moi's burial service attempted to block his brother Oburu Odinga from accessing the VIP dais.

The plane carrying Raila arrived in an entourage of his close family members and a number of ODM politicians.

However, the security guards appeared not to have recognized Raila's brother as they quickly grabbed his coat - causing an embarrassing commotion that attracted the attention of Ida and Raila.

A video of the incident showed Oburu supporting himself with Ida after the grab from a dark-suit wearing bodyguard.

Raila is then seen telling off the bodyguard before they are eventually allowed into the VIP dais.

The burial and funeral services, organised by the Kenya Defense Forces (KDF), have seen an overwhelming number of VIPs which appeared to have strained the security management in some instances.

On Tuesday, the men in black manning Nyayo Stadium roughed up Rwandan President Paul Kagame's bodyguards as they attempted to escort their boss into the VIP dais.

ICT CS Joe Mucheru was also roughed up as he attempted to sort the commotion.
