A first female Kenyan president is in the country’s capital for the first time after a countrywide vote to elect her.

The first female President of Kenya, Gwyneth T. Robinson, was sworn in on Sunday at the University of the West African (UWA) in Kenyatta, according to the Associated Press news agency.

A vote for her by the countrys largest city saw a majority of voters back her candidacy, with over half of the voters supporting her.

Robinson, who was Kenya’s first female leader in 2011, was the first woman to serve as President of the Western Cape province.

Robbinsons husband, businessman and former President Uhuru Kenyasi, was also on hand at the inauguration ceremony.
