President Paul Kagame is in Nairobi Kenya attending the inauguration of President-elect Uhuru Kenyatta. The event has attracted approximately 100,000 people according to Kenyan local media.
Kenyatta’s inauguration follows a ruling by Kenya’s Supreme Court which validated his victory in last month’s rerun poll.
President Uhuru Kenyatta and his Deputy William Ruto will individually take the oath of allegiance and that of due execution of office to be administered by Chief Registrar of the Judiciary Anne Amadi before Chief Justice David Maraga.
Thirteen of the African heads of state at the inauguration include Presidents Salva Kiir (South Sudan), Paul Kagame (Rwanda), Ismaïl Omar Guelleh (Djibouti), Hifikepunye Pohamba (Namibia), Faure Gnassingbé (Togo), Ali Bongo Ondimba (Gabon), Edgar Lungu (Zambia) and Seretse Ian Khama (Botswana).
