Michel Kafando, 72, had been chosen a day earlier to lead Burkina Faso for the next year. He will not be allowed to run in the upcoming vote, and it remains unclear what role the lieutenant colonel who initially declared himself in control of the country will play in the transitional government.
Many at the inauguration shouted support for Lt. Col. Isaac Yacouba Zida, who had been named by the military as transitional leader after longtime President Blaise Compaore fled to Ivory Coast.
Compaore stepped down amid rising opposition protests, notably over his efforts to alter the constitution so he could seek yet another term. On Tuesday, Kafando vowed to avoid such missteps.
"We must always respect the Constitution, with humility, because the power that I hold is that of the people," he said.

The Archons put another animal in power to keep the dumbed down people from progressing to this fake reality prison planet system.
It's by design the reptilian blood lines keep Africa with useless presidents aka animals.
Khadafi tried almost with succes to create a self sufficient continent, the idea was started to take Africa to a different level.
At last, Affrica was denied of its rights to emerge globally.
The criminal elites aka the globalists kill Khadafi in cold blood.
Africa will have another son to stand for the entire continent, meanwhile we will see animals rules in Africa.
