ISRAELI PM TO ATTEND PRESIDENT KENYATTA’S INAUGURATION

NAIROBI, Israel Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu will be among the 20 Heads of State and Government who will be attending Kenyan President Uhuru Kenyatta’s swearing-in for a second five-year term here Tuesday.

According to a report in The Times of Israel, Netanyahu will be in Kenya for only several hours, flying in on Tuesday morning for the inauguration and leaving the country later in the day.

Kenyan Government Spokesman Eric Kiraithe has not yet provided a list of the Heads of State and Government who have confirmed their attendance but has promised to give a full briefing later.

Meanwhile, preparations for the swearing-in ceremony are almost complete and Kiraithe has warned the main opposition coalition, the National Super Alliance (NASA), against staging any assembly to cause anarchy in the country.

He warned the political elite against navigating a path of discord and said that meetings or political gatherings to endorse a political course bent on steering anarchy in the country would be met with the full force of the law.

The government has declared Tuesday, Nov 28, a public holiday.
