Opposition leader Raila Odinga ‘sworn-in’ as the ‘people’s president’

Opposition leader Raila Odinga was on Tuesday ‘sworn-in’ as the ‘people’s president’ by thousands of his supporters at the Uhuru Park in the capital, Nairobi. The oath was administered by Ruaraka MP TJ Kajwang.

Holding a green Bible to his right arm and sandwiched by his former aide Miguna Miguna and Siaya Senator James Orengo, Raila recited his ‘oath of office’ before thousands of his supporters at Uhuru Park, Nairobi.

National Super Alliance (Nasa) principals including Kalonzo Musyoka, Musalia Mudavadi and Moses Wetang’ula were absent during the event at Uhuru Park

Odinga told his supporters that despite his deputy’s absence, Kalonzo was still part of the struggle and will be sworn in.

‘‘Kalonzo Musyoka is not here with us. But he is together with us in this. He will be sworn in later,’‘ Odinga said.

Odinga claims he won the presidential election despite the electoral commission’s official declaration that President Uhuru Kenyatta was the victor. The Supreme Court nullified Kenyatta’s August win after Odinga challenged it claiming electoral fraud.
