Kenya prevents 'swearing in' opposition leader

nairobi - Among other things, the Kenyan police came into action with tear gas against supporters of opposition leader Raila Odinga who had gathered for a protest in the center of the capital Nairobi. Thousands of people have come to the Uhuru Park in Nairobi for what they call the swearing in of their president.

Odinga wants to take the oath on Tuesday as 'president' in a protest against President Uhuru Kenyatta. Odinga states that he won the presidential elections last year and Kenyatta did not. Numerous media that have settled in the park to defeat Odinga's 'inauguration', such as the radio and television channel Citizen, are suddenly out of the blue.

Odinga lost the presidential election on 8 August, but the Supreme Court subsequently declared the ballot to be invalid. Odinga did not participate in the 'resit' on October 25, because he said that the elections would not be fair.
