Early April, Odinga suffered a minor incident after the helicopter he was travelling in was stoned at by rowdy youths in Eldoret.
Odinga was in the area to attend the late Mzee Jackson Kibor’s burial ceremony.
Severap people were arrested in connection with the incident which was criticized by President Uhuru Kenyatta.
