Uhuru Kenyatta was on Tuesday sworn in as Kenya’s president for his second term at the 60,000-seat Kasarani stadium.

The event was tainted with chaos as Kenyatta supporters attempted to force their way into the venue, prompting police to fire tear gas while officers on horseback struggled to curb the flow of people.

Kenyatta and his deputy William Ruto took the oaths of office in front of some 13 mostly African heads of state, including from South Sudan, Uganda, Rwanda, Zambia and Somalia.

Prime ministers, foreign ministers and special envoys represented other African nations, as well as Qatar, Serbia, Ukraine and the United Arab Emirates.

Nigeria’s vice president, Yemi Osinbajo, was also at the ceremony.
