On Sunday, there was anxiety after Odinga was hurriedly taken off the podium by his aides during the Supercup trophy presentation in Tanzania.

The former premier, however, assured that he was “fine and in good health.”

“Dear Kenyans and friends from around the globe, I am well and in Good health. Thank you for your concern,” he said.

Odinga was in Tanzania to watch Kenyan teams Kariobangi Sharks and Bandari FC battling for the Super Cup.

His spokesman Dennis Onyango said that the former premier was in good health, and that images of security guards holding him was due to a step on the podium that was falling off and not anything to do with his health.
