True to his words, Kenya opposition leader, Raila Odinga, has sworn in himself as an alternative 'president'

Odinga took the 'oath of office; in front of thousands of supporters, three months after claiming an election was stolen from him.

"I Raila Amolo Odinga, in full realisation of the high calling, assume the office of the People's President of the Republic of Kenya," he said in the brief and chaotic ceremony surrounded by a sea of people in Nairobi.

Television and radio stations in most of parts of Kenya were reportedly switched off over their plan to cover opposition leader Raila Odinga's "swearing-in" ceremony.

"The Communications Authority of Kenya has switched off Citizen Television and Radio in most parts of the country over the coverage of the NASA 'swearing-in' plan," Kenya's Citizen said on its website on Tuesday.

Kenya's opposition said on Monday that it would "swear in" Odinga as alternative president on Tuesday despite the attorney general's warning that such a protest act challenging the official president will amount to treason.
