Azimio la Umoja presidential candidate Raila Odinga has stepped out for the first time since election day. Raila on Sunday attended a church service at St. Francis ACK Church in Karen. 

He was accompanied by Cotu boss Francis Atwoli, Kanu chairman Gideon Moi and Lang'ata MP-elect Phelix Kodhe.

Raila's running mate Martha Karua was also present at the service.

Raila addressed the congregation and quoted St. Francis of Assisi. Raila read the verse while appealing to the congregation.

"Lord, make me an instrument of your peace. Where there is hatred, let me sow love; where there is injury, pardon; where there is doubt, faith."

Raila added

"I have a message I want to share. It's very true to our situation today, I want to become an instrument to unite and keep the hope alive for our country. We sang our national anthem which says lord bless this land of ours, and in the bible Canaan.

That's why we said we in Azimio la Kenya want to take our people across to Canaan hope you will enjoy  life in Canaan."

The last time Raila was seen out in public was on Tuesday (August 9) when he went to cast his vote at the Old Kibra Primary school polling station.

He was accompanied by his wife, Ida Odinga.

On Saturday, Raila met a team of election observers, while his running mate chaired an Azimio elected leaders meeting in Nairobi, at the Kenyatta International Convention Centre.
