PICTURES: How Raila’s historic swearing in session went down

  After days of anxiety and a postponement in December 12, 2017, Raila Odinga has taken ‘oath’ as the President of the Republic of Kenya.

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.

However, his deputy Kalonzo Musyoka was conspicuously missing from the ceremony.

“Kalonzo is still with us, he will be sworn in later due to reasons that you will be informed on a later day,” Raila explained.

The ‘swearing-in’ which the government has maintained is unconstitutional now leaves the supporters of the opposition outfit with questions of what follows next.

This is as earlier in an exclusive interview with KTN News Raila Odinga had intimated that their coalitions next course of action will be known after the swearing. “The function is on.


There is no doubt about that. Hold your horses. After the swearing in you will be told what will happen going forward,” he maintained.
