Uhuru Kenyatta, Kenya President Sworn In For Second Term!

Kenya President, Uhuru Kenyatta has been sworn in for second, five-year term. The event took place on Tuesday Nov 28, 2017. His supporters filled the stadium to witness the event.

Kenyatta won a repeat presidential election on Oct. 26 after opposition leader Raila Odinga boycotted the vote, citing concerns over fairness. Police prevented opposition leaders from holding a rival gathering on Tuesday.

The original election on 8 August was held over again after being annulled by the Supreme Court on grounds of irregularities.

During his inauguration speech, Kenyatta said: ” Fellow Kenyans, Let us at this point welcome all our friends and partners, from our region and beyond, who have spared their invaluable time to come and celebrate with us. We say to them, Asanteni sana, na Karibuni Kenya!

“You, the Kenyan voter, have been the most important player in the election. Everyone who voted played a role in strengthening our democracy: indeed, today’s celebration is yours. I say: Asanteni sana.

“You will all agree with me: the task of managing multiple elections is not a simple business. For this reason, I wish to thank the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) for managing that process under immense pressure.

“Our Judiciary – particularly the Supreme Court – adjudicated our electoral petitions with independence.

“Let me also thank my friend and Brother, Deputy President William Ruto. Your energy, humour and optimism lifted our campaign every day. I also wish to thank Mrs. Rachel Ruto. You have been the spiritual and prayerful bedrock of our two families; and the Kenyan nation. Thank you, Rachel.

“To my dear wife Margaret: you have been my pillar of strength; your passion to uplift the well-being of every Kenyan inspires me, as it inspires millions of Kenyans. I thank you, Margaret.

“Fellow Kenyans, You took the time to listen to the different points of view, and to the leaders who asked for your vote. We may have chosen different candidates, and different visions, but each of us voted for a better life. I too listened carefully to my competitors, and, in the spirit of inclusivity, I will endeavour to incorporate some of their ideas.

He is now the President of Kenya until 2022. | Rebranding & Celebrating Africa!
