Kenya opposition leader Raila Odinga took a symbolic presidential oath of office on the Bible in a Nairobi park in front of thousands of ecstatic supporters on Tuesday in a direct challenge to President Uhuru Kenyatta's rule.

"I will protect and uphold sovereignty, integrity and dignity of the people of Kenya, so help me God," Odinga said to the cheers of more than 15,000 people in Uhuru Park, next to Nairobi's main business district.
