President Uhuru Kenyatta will be sworn in for his second and last term in office on August 29 if his victory is not challenged in the Supreme Court.

According to the law, the President-elect and his deputy are to be inaugurated on the Tuesday following the 14th date of the declaration of presidential election results, if no petition is filed.

This means that Uhuru and his deputy William Ruto will take oath of office in the presence of Chief Justice David Maraga on August 29, barring a court petition.

According to Garissa Town MP Aden Duale, the National Assembly and the Senate will be convened by August 22 for the swearing-in of MPs, election of Speaker and deputy speakers and also constitution of committees of the Houses.
