Kenyan police briefly detain legislator over opposition leader's 'swearing in'

NAIROBI (Reuters) - Kenyan police on Saturday briefly detained a third opposition legislator who attended a symbolic “swearing-in” of opposition leader Raila Odinga that was a direct challenge to President Uhuru Kenyatta, who won re-election in October.

The government has made several arrests and suspended three television channels that had planned to stream Tuesday’s event.
