Raila Odinga swears himself in as Kenyan president
There’s a political situation in Kenya that can be safely described as treason and can lead to a civil war, if not managed.
Opposition leader, Raila Odinga today inaugurated himself as Kenyan president at a swearing-in ceremony that was attended by thousands of supporters of the opposition party.
Odinga ran in the 2017 presidential election that saw President Uhuru Kenyatta emerge as winner. The election was nullified following claims it was riddled with irregularities. In a rerun election that Kenyatta won again, Odinga dropped out of the race citing “lack of electoral reforms” as excuse.
Kenya’s “second” president, Raila Odinga has updated his Twitter bio to read, “This is the official account of His Excellency Raila Amolo Odinga. Sworn in as the People’s President on 30/1/2018”
Well as they say, two heads are always better than one!

Go and get your #PVC

Dear Governor Dankwambo of Gombe, no one said the future of the country lies in a reality show. No one. Just preach your PVC sermon and be going. Leave our Big Brother alone.
