NAIROBI: Kenya's opposition is calling for a 'people's assembly' next month amid its claims that the election of President Uhuru Kenyatta is illegitimate.
Opposition leader Raila Odinga is calling for the Dec. 12 assembly and his supporters say the gathering will elect a leader to run the country until new elections can be held. The day is Kenya's Independence Day.
The calls come on the day that Kenyatta was sworn in and urged an end to hatred and divisions. During and after the ceremony, police fired rifles and tear gas to break up an opposition gathering to mourn the dozens of people killed in the months of election unrest.
