Excitement ahead of Uhuru’s inauguration

By News Editor Wangui Gichuru
Kenyans are excited ahead of tomorrow’s inauguration ceremony of the 4th president at the Moi International Sports Centre, Kasarani.
It will be a new dawn for Kenya when a new devolved government will be sworn to power under the new constitution.
President-elect Uhuru Kenyatta Muigai and Deputy President-elect William Ruto of Jubilee alliance will be sworn in after the highest court in the country upheld their victory in a petition filed by the immediate former Prime Minister, Raila Odinga of the Coalition of Reforms and Democracy (CORD).
Cord moved to court to challenge Mr Uhuru’s Victory citing what they termed as “massive election irregularities.”
However, the Supreme Court, led by Chief Justice Willy Mutunga dismissed Cord’s claims and confirmed Mr Kenyatta’s win.
The office of the president today briefed president-elect Uhuru Kenyatta on his duties and responsibilities as the new head of state.
The new president will occupy the office of the president at Harambee House, Nairobi while his Deputy President-elect William Ruto will occupy the offices at Shell BP House.
The government has been preparing for tomorrow’s historic event for days to ensure a smooth run of things. Among those expected to grace the handing over of power include the military, the disciplined force, the media, and various traditional dancing groups with their neat regalia.
Heads of states have also started jetting in the country.
