One year on since Kenya saw the ‘swearing in’ of Raila Odinga as the people’s president

30th January, 2019

On this day, last year Kenya saw the ‘swearing?in’ of Opposition leader Raila Odinga as the people’s president after the hotly contested presidential election that saw the country stare at possible post?election violence. The Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) chairman Wafula Chebukati had declared President Uhuru Kenyatta winner of the October 26, 2017 repeat presidential election. He garnered 7,483,895 votes out of the 7,616,217 valid votes cast. The National Super Alliance (NASA) said it would not recognise Uhuru's victory and threatened to swear in Raila Odinga as the president. A lot has happened but the key to note is the March 9th, 2018 handshake that presented a new tide to Kenya’s political handshake.
