Kenya Opposition Leader Odinga Takes Oath as 'People's President'

A key security committee decided that police should be withdrawn from Uhuru Park and allow the opposition alliance Nada to 'swear in' Raila Odinga, the Daily Nation reports. Quoting an unnamed source, the newspaper says that the National Security Advisory Committee also decided to withdraw Odinga's police bodyguards, and those of other Nasa leaders Kalonzo Musyoka, Musalia Mudavadi and Moses Wetang'ula. The three were absent from the event.
