Nasa leader Raila Odinga spent his second day in Zanzibar on Tuesday and he seems to be enjoying his time on the island.

The opposition leader left the country on Sunday a day before the Supreme Court upheld president Uhuru Kenyatta's victory following the October 26 election.

On Tuesday, a Kenyan tour guide by the name Sasha Seraphine Mbote posted pictures of herself with Mr Odinga, the two locked in an embrace at Park Hyatt Hotel in Zanzibar.

According to the woman's LinkedIn profile, she is a spa manager, beautician and a tour guide.

Posting the photos on Facebook has exposed her to bitter trolls from Kenyans. On one hand, she seems to be enjoying the instant recognition she is getting.

On the other, she's hurt by the responses so far.

But in several posts on her Facebook page, she says the photos with Mr Odinga are good for business.

"... now I'm being called all sorts of names but I don't care let them make me trend."

"... let them make me trend, it's good for my business."

After being profiled on one of the famous Kilimani Mums Facebook page, she admits that she has had to endure name calling and ended up shedding tears.

"I learnt a lot, I even shed some tears. I'm already trending in Kilimani as his yellow yellow prostitute bro I'm shocked at how shallow politics have turned Kenyans."
