The National Super Alliance (NASA) on Friday unveiled its controversial program to swear in Raila Odinga on Tuesday December 12.

Speaking to journalists at the Okoa Kenya Secretariat, Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) Executive Director Oduor Ong’wen outlined how the event will be held but failed to confirm the venue and the list of invited guests. They also did not mention explicitly that Mr. Odinga will be sworn in.

“We will open with a national anthem followed by prayers led by various religious leaders. Then there will be a formal declaration of the congregation gathered. The fourth item will be adoption of the agenda. The fifth item will be the inauguration of the leadership and the sixth will be the address by leaders of the assembly,” said Ong’wen.

The Executive Director also said that a secretariat has been put in place to manage the logistics of the constitutive assembly.

“Since this committee was established last week we have put in place a secretariat to manage the work of the preparation of the assembly. The secretariat will be based at Okoa Kenya and the head of that secretariat will be Dr Noah Akala,” said Ong’wen.

This comes one day after Attorney General Githu Muigai termed the planned swearing in as “high treason” saying planners and the facilitators of the swearing in will face the full wrath of the law.

Mr. Odinga had announced that he will be sworn in on Tuesday, December 12.
