Raila cut a cake and danced while surrounded by family and friends on his big day.

Mr Odinga and the president have been on good terms after the two set aside their differences and vowed to work together after the famous March 9, 2018 handshake.

The two have since publicly agreed on a number of issues that had previously set them at odds in the past. Key among them are the war on corruption and inclusivity in national decision-making.
