Kenyan opposition leader Raila Odinga had himself sworn in as an alternative president Tuesday in front of thousands of supporters, despite warnings from authorities that this was treason.
"I Raila Amolo Odinga, in full realisation of the high calling, assume the office of the People's President of the Republic of Kenya," he said in the brief and chaotic ceremony surrounded by a sea of people in Nairobi.
The crowd went wild as Odinga raised the Bible aloft upon taking the unofficial oath of office, its wording different to that sworn by Kenyatta in November.
"We have accomplished our promise to Kenyans," said Odinga in a brief speech before departing, the packed venue emptying out in minutes.Last Mod: 30 Ocak 2018, 15:44
