Swearing In or Not Swearing In: The Kenyan Afro Cinema
When the Supreme Court of Kenya ruled that President Uhuru Kenyatta had been legally reelected during the repeat presidential election of 26th October, Kenyans sighed.
They knew that at last, politics had come to an end and it was time to focus on developments but no, Kenya now seems to be deeply-rooted into politics.
The opposition, led by Raila Odinga has said that their leader will be sworn in on 12th of December 2017 at an undisclosed location. Already the United States of America has warned Raila Odinga against such actions.
The Attorney General, Githu Muigai, said that any attempt to swear in Raila Odinga will be high treason punishable by death, something that has been opposed by various legal minds.
Economic analysts are already overseeing disruptions of business come 12th of December. Some investors have once again suspended investment plans until the 12th of December as they adopt the wait-and-see approach.
What will happen on 12th? Will Raila Odinga be arrested? How will his supporters react?
