Kenya election: Security tight for Kenyatta inauguration


Security has been stepped up in the Kenyan capital, Nairobi, ahead of the inauguration of President Uhuru Kenyatta for a second term in office.
People in festive mood have been pouring into a stadium where more than 20 heads of state or senior ministers are expected to attend.
Opposition leader Raila Odinga mocked Mr. Kenyatta's "coronation", saying he had not been elected legitimately.
He boycotted the re-run of the presidential poll last month.
Just under 39% of voters turned out on 26 October and Mr. Kenyatta, who officially won with 98% of the vote.
The original election on 8 August was held over again after being annulled by the Supreme Court on grounds of irregularities.

Organizers are expecting about 60,000 people to fill Nairobi's Kasarani sports stadium where the inauguration is taking place, with giant screens set up outside for those unable to get in.
