Kenyans take opposition leader’s ‘mock’ inauguration literally with the “Swearing-in Challenge” [Photos]

Kenyans on social media have taken the “mock swearing-in” ceremony of opposition leader Raila Odinga literally with the “Swearing-in Challenge” which went viral after Tuesday’s event.

Odinga took an “oath” of office at the Uhuru Park and declared himself the “people’s president” before thousands of supporters.

Immediately after the opposition National Super Alliance (NASA) party defiantly swore in its leader, Twitter was awash with hilarious pictures showing Kenyans imitating Raila Odinga’s oath-taking using cooking utensils among other items.

The “Swearing-in Challenge” first went viral in November last year after the swearing-in of President Uhuru Kenyatta which is being disputed by the opposition.

Here are a few amusing photos we spotted on Twitter after Odinga’s mock inauguration.
