For God And For Country. UhuRuto Set To Take Oath
Thousands of Jubilee supporters in preparation for the swearing-in of Uhuru Kenyatta and William Ruto
Going into what might be their hardest five years yet, Uhuru Kenyatta and William Ruto are on Tuesday morning going to take oath of office before thousands of their supporters at the Kasarani Stadium.
After a bitterly fought dual-leg contest that saw the incumbent president declared duly elected twice, Kenya's political scene has become more complicated. Though largely peaceful, it is clear that the campaigns and the whole electoral process has been very divisive. Rather than uniting Kenyans, the process has resulted in hardline stances.
It will be hard to please everyone in the formation of the next government. Word is already going around that there will be a major cabinet shuffle after today's ceremony.

As he raises the Bible to swear to serve the country, Uhuru Kenyatta knows that there is a lot to be done. The previous five years have been tarnished by corruption and concerns on nepotism and tribalism but he will have to try and reclaim the support of others who do not have faith in him.
Deputy President, William Ruto will also have work to do as he tries to harmonize his mandate and the ambition to take over from Mr. Kenyatta in 2022.
