Raila swearing-in team to make announcement
Opposition chief Raila Odinga has said the National Super Alliance (NASA) will on Sunday (December 24) unveil more details on his planned ‘swearing-in’.
Speaking at Mahanga Village in Vihiga County during a funeral service for the 16 victims who perished in a road accident at Kamukuya Bridge along Webuye-Kitale highway, Odinga said the opposition would not be intimidated in its quest for electoral justice.
Mr. Odinga insisted NASA does not recognize the October 26th repeat presidential poll saying it was not conducted as the Supreme Court advised.
Addressing the issue of road carnage, Mr. Odinga blamed the National Transport and Safety Authority (NTSA) for the rising cases of accidents in the country.
The opposition leader accused the government on laxity in implementing road safety policies, adding that to contain the rising cases of road accidents.
He accused Acting Interior Cabinet Secretary Fred Matiang’i and his Transport counterpart James Macharia of failing to put concrete measures to secure Kenyan roads.
On December 10, NASA called off the controversial ‘swearing in’ of Mr. Odinga that was scheduled to take place in Mombasa on Tuesday, December 12.
NASA co-principal Musalia Mudavadi said the opposition would announce a new date for the swearing-in and launch of the people’s assembly later.
During the burial of the late Kitui West Member of Parliament Francis Nyenze on December 19, Raila Odinga declared he is ready to pay the ultimate price for electoral justice to be realised in the country.
Odinga reaffirmed that he would be “sworn-in” as president despite warnings that he could be charged with high treason – an offence punishable by death.
“If death is the price that we must pay that Kenyans get electoral justice, that there is no more election rigging in future, we are ready to pay that price. We will be sworn in wafanye kile wanataka kufanya (let them do what they want),” said Odinga amid cheers from his supporters.
