The much-awaited ‘swearing in’ of NASA leader Raila Odinga and his running mate Kalonzo Musyoka has been scheduled to take place at the end of this month according to a special planning committee.

Citizen TV has learnt that the National Super Alliance (NASA) opposition coalition intends to ‘swear in’ Odinga at Uhuru Park grounds in Nairobi after a series of rallies and meetings in several counties.

After twice postponing the inauguration of Mr. Odinga, NASA insists that their oath taking plan will proceed unless the Jubilee administration agrees to dialogue.

NASA CEO Norman Magaya confirmed that  the planned ‘swearing in’ will be conducted at the end of the month adding that the coalition is ready to pay the ultimate price to restore the power of the vote. The technical committee handling the preparations is scheduled to meet today (Thursday) to give a clear road map of events.

Citizen TV has learnt that beginning this weekend, Raila Odinga will embark on a tour of western Kenya with trips to Busia and Kakamega where People’s Assembly gatherings will be held.

Wiper Party leader Kalonzo Musyoka is also expected to play host to his co principals who plan to tour the Ukambani in mid January to launch the regional People’s Assembly forum in Machakos.

North-Eastern region is also in the opposition’s radar with a planned joint meeting in Garissa town, before the leaders head to Mombasa for a rally in the run up to the ‘swearing in’.

Narok, Migori and Kisii counties have also been scheduled to launch the people’s assemblies with Gusii stadium expected to host the last rally before the ‘inauguration’.

With the momentum now at its peak, NASA is then expected to stage a grand rally on the last Tuesday of January where the inauguration of the national People’s Assembly will be done.

The ‘swearing in’ of Raila Odinga and Kalonzo Musyoka as the people’s assembly leaders and conveners will be the climax of the event.
