Prime Minister Raila Odinga was accorded a head of state honors during the swearing in of Tanzania President John Pombe Magufuli.
President Magufuli and H. E Kikwete gave PM Odinga executive presidential treatment complete with an Aide-de-Camp (see photos). Raila was given a proper standing ovation as a special friend of Tanzania. The stadium went into a frenzy when he was introduced to the crowd.
PM Odinga was booked at the Serena-Dar El Salam and spent long time with both President Kikwete and Magufuli in the Statehouse chatting and cracking jokes. President Uhuru met president Magufuli briefly but left rather early back to Nairobi to (most likely) monitor the Social Media siege on CS Waiguri.
PM Raila had a bigger delegation than Uhuru who was only accompanied by CS Amina Mohammed and Najib Balala. Raila tagged along Governor Rasanga, Hon Wetangula, Hon Muthama, Hon Oburu, Mama Ida, Governor Joho, Governor Kingi, Senator ongoro, Senator Agnes zani, Senator James Orengo , Nyali MP aspirant Hon Saido and ODM lead Nairobi senate aspirant Ahmed Papa.
