NASA says swearing-in of Raila, Kalonzo to go on

Written By: Brenda Czeda


The much publicized swearing-in of opposition leader Raila Odinga as the Peoples’ president and Kalonzo Musyoka as his deputy will go on as planned.

NASA’s People Assembly Organizing Committee says arrangements for the swearing-in ceremony that first aborted on Jamhuri Day are on course, with the pair vowing to take oath of office on January 30th this year as planned.

While the duo chickened out of the earlier swearing-in ceremony albeit at the eleventh hour, NASA’s People Assembly Organizing Committee says the planned ceremony this time round is no laughing matter.

NASA is also accusing Jubilee party of being behind what it terms as false propaganda that the swearing-in of the two Opposition leaders is a bargaining chip for dialogue with President Uhuru Kenyatta.

In December last year, the Attorney General Githu Muigai warned the National Super Alliance (NASA) that swearing in of their leader Raila Odinga was tantamount to treason.

He said such an inauguration would be outside the Constitution because Kenya already has a sitting president who was inaugurated on November 28.

Millions of Kenyans are waiting to see if the two will take oath of office as the people’s president.
