Raila to take oath
In a statement to newsrooms, the opposition leader gave his supporters something to look forward to in January 2018.
The statement read in part that "We promise you that you can now look forward confidently to our swearing-in ceremony very early in the New Year."
He however failed to disclose the exact date of the much awaited event.
In the statement, Odinga noted that even after the opposition had postponed the event, the Jubilee administration had shown no interest in dialogue, instead choosing to entrench the dictatorial regime.
Reassuring his supporters that the nation shall not go back to dictatorship, Odinga urged his supporters to urge themselves with with faith, hope and the courage of our convictions. We too shall overcome and we have a clear programme to victory.”
NASA secretariat coordinating the event had promised to release the program of the swearing in event but had not done so by the time of going to press.
The statement which read in part that “we are called upon to accept that there is political hierarchy of communities in this country, the rulers and the ruled, or to affirm our dignity as equal citizens and to invoke our inalienable human right to self-determination if we must,” hinted at renewed calls for secession.
Odinga also paid tribute to those who died following the August elections and the repeat polls in October.
