Top news items in Kenya's major media outlets

Xinhua,December 18, 2017 Adjust font size:

NAIROBI, Dec. 18 (Xinhua) -- The following are the news highlights in Kenyan media outlets on Monday.

-- National Super Alliance leader Raila Odinga on Sunday vowed he will soon be sworn in as the "people's president" and scoffed at President Uhuru Kenyatta's warning last week that anyone who undermines the constitution or peace of the nation will face the full wrath of the law.

While his determination to take the oath will appease millions of his supporters, it is likely to antagonize foreign countries, religious leaders and trade unionists, who want to bridge the rift between the opposition and the government through mediated talks. (Daily Nation)

-- Backroom negotiations by various parties and background checks by intelligence officials have delayed the naming of the Cabinet by President Uhuru Kenyatta, weeks since he was sworn-in. (The Standard)

-- The government intends to cut the cost of liquid petroleum gas by half in the next three years in a strategy that will see taxation on kerosene increased to discourage its use. (The Star)

-- A partnership between Kenya and the Unites States promises to see over 2,000 small businesses in three counties venture into the expansive American market by December next year. (Business Daily) Enditem
