Kenyan Opposition Leader Raila Odinga has just declared himself the people’s president and held a mock inauguration where he symbolically swore himself the president. The inauguration which lasted about 20 minutes saw thousands of his supporters in attendance even though the government had stated that it would be considered as treason if they attended.

Odinga who leads the leading opposition party refused to accept the outcome of the previous 2017 election which saw Uhuru Kenyatta being re-elected, and boycotted the second vote after claiming it was not free and fair.
