Kenya tightens security ahead of President Uhuru Kenyatta inauguration

Security has been stepped up in the Kenyan capital, Nairobi, ahead of the inauguration of President Uhuru Kenyatta for a second term in office. More than 20 heads of state or senior ministers are expected to attend. Opposition leader Raila Odinga dismissed the inauguration as a "coronation", saying Mr Kenyatta had not been elected legitimately.

He boycotted the re-run of the presidential poll last month, when fewer than 39 percent of voters turned out. Mr Kenyatta won with 98 percent of the vote.
