Amidst growing political crisis, Uhuru Kenyatta is sworn in as the Kenyan President for the second term.

The magnificent inauguration ceremony has taken place at Kasarani sports stadium in Nairobi, Kenya.

Several International political figures, Ethiopian Prime Minister Hailemariam Desalegn and Rwandan President Paul Kagame, have participated in the colourful ceremony.

The supporters of the opposition leader, Raila Odinga, who boycotted the reelection which took place after the cancellation of the ‘August eight’ general election, have indulged in several minute clashes with the police and security officials outside the stadium and in several remote areas across the country.

Anyway, while addressing the people who have assembled in the stadium to witness the ceremony, the Kenyan supremo has asserted that he would try to hear and accommodate opposition’s views in certain subjects.

At this moment, it is not clear whether Mr Kenyatta can improve the political situation of the country or not.

The noteworthy thing is that only thirty nine per cent people participated in the last elections, in which the newly elected president grabbed an overwhelming vote share of ninety-eight per cent.

There have been reports that the declaration made by the opposition leader was the prime reason behind the sharp decrement in the number people participated in the last election.
