President-Elect William Ruto To Be Sworn In Today

Kenya’s President elect, Dr William Ruto will today be sworn in as the country’s 5th leader. This comes after the Supreme Court upheld his election victory on Monday last week.

The Kenyan law states that the President elect will be sworn in 7 days after the Supreme Court upholds his election in case of a petition.

A petition by former prime minister Raila Odinga got dismissed by the Supreme Court that had challenged Ruto’s declaring as the new president.

The Chief Justice will administer the oath of the office of the president-elect alongside the Registrar of the High Court.

Once the president is sworn in, his deputy will also take the oath of office. Following this, the outgoing president Uhuru Kenyatta will handover the instruments of power to the new president.

On this same note, opposition leader Raila Odinga revealed that he will not be able to attend Ruto’s swearing in ceremony.

He says he received an invitation card and phone call from President Ruto but unfortunately is out of the country. He also said he has other serious concerns including unclear election results which he maintains are unclear.

In the meantime, President Museveni is one of the presidents from the East African Community expected to attend the ceremony. However though, all presidents of the the EAC member states confirmed their presence.
