Former Kenya’s Prime Minister, Raila Odinga, has revealed that he is open to receiving applications from men wishing to marry his ‘daughter’.

Making his grand appearance at the 2015 Luo Festival, which was held on Saturday night at Carnivore Grounds Nairobi, the former premier introduced his ‘daughter’, Diana Nyagowe, to a cheering crowd.

Men went wild once Baba said he would be happy to have a son-in-law from the crowd.

He went ahead to ask those interested in wooing Diana to send dowry to his home in form of cows.

“This lady is my daughter Diana Nyagowe. Can you see how beautiful she is? Men, I only want dowry in form of cows from you,” said Raila amidst ululations.

Raila added he went to spend the ‘important’ night with fans and that he flew from Kisumu on Saturday morning to attend the event.

“Today I won’t speak much, neither will I discuss politics, I am here to celebrate with you this important event,” said Raila.

The Cord party leader graced the event in the company of his wife Ida Odinga, daughter Rosemary Odinga, and friends including Siaya Senator James Orengo and Minority Leader Jakoyo Midiwo among other dignitaries.

Raila and Ida were dressed in attractive blue traditional African attire, with daughter Rosemary donning a brown print dress.

When the crowd learnt of Baba’s presence at the event, they moved in masses to the VVIP section where he sat to take his photo.

Fans exploded into a spectacle of excitement when Raila took to the stage to speak before he, in his characteristic dancing style, shook a leg to the tunes of Luo music dropped by Lady Maureen.

The highlight of the evening was when he pulled a lady of European descent to the stage to dance.

The former premier proceeded to dance for close to 20 minutes before he, together with his wife Ida and daughter Rosemary, went back to their reserved place in the VVIP section for the rest of the night.
