Photos have emerged of former Prime Minister Raila Amollo Odinga receiving special blessings from the leadership of the Legio Maria Church.

From the photos, the Orange Democratic Movement ODM party leader can be seen conversing with the church leadership before he put on the special Legio Maria attire.

It is also not yet clear if he is the one who gave out a goat or whether the goat was given to him after having received the blessings from the church leadership.

"The anointing season for politicians is here. From Dedan Kimathi's Widow Mukami Kimathi, to today's priests. Baba's cup is overflows"the standard newspaper.

This comes weeks after he received similar blessings from the widow of the late freedom fighter Dedan Kimathi after he visited her at her home.

During the visit, Raila lauded her as an embodiment of Kenya’s struggle for independence as Mukami blessed Raila by putting her hands on top of his head as she prayed for the presidential hopeful.

“She was detained together with other wives of freedom fighters. She is a freedom fighter like others,” Raila said.
