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

"I, Raila Omolo Odinga, do swear that I will protect the nation as people's president, so help me God," he said as the crowd cheered.
