Kenyans disappoint Uhuru at Kasarani Stadium

Kenyatta arrived at the Stadium at around noon

When President Kenyatta last attended a function at Kasarani Stadium, it was packed beyond capacity as thousands graced his second inauguration ceremony.

However, on Tuesday, the historic Stadium was filled with empty benches as most Kenyans gave the event a wide berth.

Majority of foreign dignitaries also skipped the event, with former Ghanaian President John Mahama being the most notable guest.

Others who graced the ceremony were diplomats, Chief Justice David Maraga and a host of governors and their deputies.

Outside the stadium, dozens of security officers were seen keeping watch in the area.

It had been expected that the Jamhuri Day fete would result in a battle of masses as the Jubilee and NASA coalitions attempted to demonstrate a show of power in their parallel event.

The bubble was, however, burst after NASA cancelled Odinga's swearing in ceremony which had been slotted for Tuesday.
