It is unusually quiet at Raila Odinga's residence in Karen ahead of his swearing-in at Uhuru Park today.

In a day that is expected to be dominated by pomp and fanfare, nothing much is happening at the opposition leader's residence.

The media has been blocked from accessing his home and are currently camping outside the main gate.

The guards manning the gate say they are under strict instruction not to allow the media into the home.

It is not clear however whether Mr Odinga is at his Karen home as there are conflicting reports of his whereabouts by people close to him.

At around 7.30am, Mr Odinga's youngest son Raila Junior said that his father was not home.

But later, one of the vehicles used by the former premier arrived at the compound giving a hint that he may be at his home.
