Kenya celebrates new president; daggers for West
< Previous Page
Thousands of Kenyans began arriving at the stadium as early as 5 a.m. on Tuesday, seven hours before Kenyatta took the oath from the country’s chief justice. Many wore badges with pictures of Kenyatta and waved red flags.
"I am excited because I am coming to witness the swearing in of a new president and his deputy," said Newton Githaiga. "Normally in any election people are split, but in a few months people will be together. Kenyans should be reconciled because as a divided people we cannot go far."
