William Samoei Ruto has officially been declared President of Kenya following his swearing-in ceremony, which took place at the Karasani Stadium, Kenya.
Amid cheers from the excited crowd, Ruto publicly declared the oath of allegiance and appended his signature to the corresponding documents, as seen in the live broadcast monitored by our correspondent on Tuesday.
With his inauguration, Ruto becomes the fifth president of Independent Kenya, and the second ethnic Kalenjin after the late Daniel Arap Moi to hold the office.
Malawi President Dr Lazarus Mc Cathy Chakwera was among other African leaders attended the event.
