Kenyan President, Uhuru Kenyatta orders journalists out of event

Kenyan President Uhuru Kenyatta has ordered journalists out of an event he was speaking at, finishing his speech by telling them to pack away their equipment and leave.

Hours earlier, the Interior Cabinet Secretary Fred Matiang'i had ordered journalists out of another event he was speaking at the Radisson Blu hotel in Nairobi.

Police officers then removed journalists from the building, according to local news site Nairobi news.

The move came ahead of his rival, Raila Odinga, declaring himself "the people's president" at a mock swearing-in ceremony.
Mr Kenyatta had hoped to prevent the TV stations broadcasting the event. Instead, they live-streamed it online.
