Teargas fired at Odinga “swearing-in” in Nairobi


Kenyan police fired teargas to disperse thousands of opposition supporters gathering in central Nairobi to celebrate the planned swearing-in of opposition leader Raila Odinga.

Odinga said he and not President Uhuru Kenyatta is the country’s rightful leader. Odinga lost an August 8 presidential election nullified by the Supreme Court and boycotted a repeat poll on October 25, saying it would not be free and fair.
