'I'm Now The King' Raila Says As He Is Dressed In Regal Robes For His Sacrifices To Democracy

The Hekima Kaka Society honored ODM leader Raila Odinga on Friday for his contributions to making Kenya a better country.

In a star-studded gala that drew Raila's friends from around the continent together, the organization said that Odinga had demonstrated patriotism, knowledge, perseverance, and power throughout the years.

They claim that his choice to shake hands with Kenyan President Uhuru Kenyatta gave the people hope.

Raila wore a two-piece suit over a black animal skin cloak with the Kenyan flag's colors on the heming, as well as a Kufi cap, which is synonymous with African chiefs, and a ceremonial spear, while sitting on a gold and crimson 'throne' with a footstool.

"Of course, my better half is here with me, she has been crowned the queen and I am the king... and she is sitting there in her throne," Raila remarked, beaming at his wife, who, too, sat on gold and scarlet 'throne,' dressed in a ceremonial robe and cap.

According to the ODM's leader, Africa, which is one of the world's poorest continents, can only prosper if it is first united.
