Kenya's opposition party holds pre-inauguration fete

The convention was meant to get the way forward regarding Raila's swearing-in

The National Super Alliance (NASA) party took to Homa Bay county on Saturday for the Nyanza People's Assembly convention.

Led by party leader Raila Odinga, the outfit's leadership met various delegates from the county in what was a forum meant to get the way forward regarding Raila's inauguration ceremony next week.

The opposition chief, alongside Kalonzo Musyoka, are set to be sworn-in on January 30 at Uhuru Park as President and Deputy President respectively.

Raila called on his support base to resist what he termed as a deliberate attempt to reintroduce dictatorship through poll malpractices.

“The general trend in Africa is re-establishing dictatorship where state captures institutions of governance like the legislature, Judiciary and electoral commission,” the former prime minister told the delegates.

Conspicuously missing from the convention was NASA Co-principal and Ford Kenya party leader Moses Wetangula who is currently out of the country for Senate trip to Paris, France and UK.

NASA says Raila's oath plan is based on the outcome of the August 8 election which they insist was won by Mr. Odinga.

And while they maintain that ceremony will be held at Uhuru Park, the Nairobi county government has asserted that the venue will be cordoned off, risking violent confrontation with police.
