Duale terms selfish NASA planned boycott of Parliamentarians swearing in
National Assembly Majority Leader, Aden Duale, has condemned the National Super Alliance (NASA) leaders for intending to boycott the swearing-in ceremony of the Senate and Members of Parliament following a special Gazette Notice dated August 23, 2017 in which the President called for the first sitting of the 12th Bicameral House.
“Notice is given that pursuant of to article 126(2) of the Constitution, I, Uhuru Kenyatta, President of the Republic of Kenya and Commander-in-Chief of Defence Force, gives notice that the first sitting of the Twelfth Parliament – The National Assembly shall be held in the National Assembly Chamber, Nairobi on Thursday, 31st August at 2:30pm,” the notice reads.
Duale has criticised the move by ODM Director of Elections, Junet Mohamed, who challenged his fellow NASA leaders to only take oath of office after the Supreme Court’s verdict.
“NASA members will stay away from the swearing-in until the matters surrounding Uhuru’s supposed re-election are heard and credibly determined. We will not party to processes geared towards sanitizing fraud,” said Junet.
Duale maintained that there is no vacuum in the government and questioned why NASA Governors agreed to be sworn in but deny their MPs and Senators an opportunity to do the same.
“All elected leaders should start delivering and stop listening to shenanigan from those who lost in the just concluded polls,” said Duale.
