Nairobi - Considering his last triumphant return from a trip abroad, CORD leader Raila Odinga had a less than glamorous return to the country.
The CORD leader, away for the last two weeks to Europe and then Mozambique returned Tuesday afternoon to a sprinkling of support at the Jomo Kenyatta International Airport in Nairobi.
He was welcomed back in the low key reception by CORD leaders, Senators and MPs, and a few journalists and supporters.
The former Prime Minister took time on his Twitter account to state his return to the country.
" I'm back, he simply said.

Unlike the huge reception and rally that awaited him on his return from the United States a couple of months ago, this time, the CORD boss preferred a quiet reception.
" He wanted a quiet reception to allow Kenyans get on with work and their daily lives, an aide close to Raila told News24.
With his return, he is expected to try help the coalition deal with ongoing unrest in Ukambani region, where there is growing unrest following problems in Makueni County and other growing problem areas.
The CORD leader is also expected to continue ramping up support for the Okoa Kenya referendum campaign.
