Kenyan Opposition chair says Raila's oath to be presided over by 'qualified judge'

A number of dignitaries have also confirmed their attendance

Mr Magaya, in an interview with Citizen Digital, said the judge will preside over the swearing in process which will include handing over of the “instruments of power" in full glare of the public. He however declined to state the name of the judge in question.

The Constitution, in Article 141, however provides that the president-elect should be sworn in by the chief registrar of the Judiciary in the presence of the chief justice, or in his absence, the deputy chief justice.

Magaya also insisted that NASA would use Uhuru Park as their venue despite the government declaring the grounds a no-go zone until further notice.

A number of dignitaries have also confirmed their attendance to the ceremony which the NASA CEO says will take place from 10a.m.

“We are finalizing plans for the inauguration. We are expecting a number of dignitaries who have already confirmed their attendance. The ones who will not be able to attend the event have sent their congratulatory messages,” said Magaya.

“Tuesday will be a historic day that will end bad governance in this country. I can guarantee you that it will be a smooth process,” said the opposition chair while dismissing speculation that police might harass NASA supporters.

NASA plans to swear in Mr. Odinga and Kalonzo Musyoka as the people’s president and deputy president respectively on January 30.

However the government has indicated through Attorney General Githu Muigai that the event will be an act of “high treason” that is punishable by death.
