NASA leader Raila Odinga has finally arrived at Uhuru Park for his swearing-in.
This is after a long wait by supporters who had been at the grounds since early morning.
The ceremony began with the national anthem being played followed by prayers.
Senator James Orengo delivered the opening remarks, noting that it was a historic occasion for the country.
