UHURU KENYATTA TAKES OATH
“I swear that I will be faithful and bear true allegiance to the Republic of Kenya; that I will obey, preserve, protect and defend this Constitution of Kenya, as by law established, and all other laws of the Republic;
“And that I will protect and uphold the sovereignty, integrity and dignity of the people of Kenya… to do justice to all in accordance with this Constitution, as by law established, and the laws of Kenya, without fear, favour, affection or ill-will.”
Deputy president William Ruto also swore the two oaths.
Meanwhile, police faced off with Uhuru rival Raila Odinga’s supporters.
Uhuru had invited Odinga to his inauguration. But Odinga insists Uhuru is not Kenya’s legitimate president.
