"hustler" william ruto sworn in as kenya's president after close election

Global News published this video item, entitled “”Hustler” William Ruto sworn in as Kenya’s president after close election” – below is their description.

William Ruto was sworn in Tuesday as Kenya’s fifth president on Tuesday, a week after the Supreme Court rejected a challenge by his defeated opponent in a close election that he won by portraying himself as an underdog “hustler” battling the elite.

Nairobi’s 60,000-seat Kasarani Sports Centre was packed by 5 a.m. local time with Ruto supporters wearing his party colours of yellow and green, waving miniature national flags to the sounds of a band.

Ruto thanked supporters, saying a “village boy has become the president of Kenya,” and hoisted a ceremonial sword into the air after being sworn-in.

He must now confront an economic crisis, however, in East Africa’s wealthiest and most stable nation, where food and fuel prices are surging, unemployment is high and public debt rising.
