Kenya Politics news
President Uhuru Kenyatta as well as his deputy William Ruto were yesterday in attendance during Mike Mbuvi Sonko‘s inauguration as Nairobi governor.
Also in attendance as well as to the surprise of many, was outgoing governor Evans Kidero as well as his former deputy Jonathan Mueke. Kidero was present to hand over the instruments of power to Sonko, although also conceded defeat as well as wished Sonko well.
He had earlier promised to contest the results of the election in court, although coming from the happenings at Uhuru Park yesterday, which will not be happening.
When he took to the podium, President Uhuru took a subtle dig at Raila Odinga, by emphasizing on Kidero’s concession as well as congratulating him. Uhuru fought off Raila Odinga two weeks ago, who refused to concede citing massive as well as widespread irregularities. Raila had initially taken the mass action route although last week reversed earlier statements choosing to go to the Supreme Court.
Uhuru said Kidero’s move to concede will be a show of mature politics as well as love to the nation.
Here are some photos coming from the swearing-in ceremony.
