Court Gives Raila 48 Hour Deadline

NASA leader Raila Odinga has been given a firm order that will give him 48 hours...

The orders were made on Monday after the Judge learnt that the NASA team was yet to respond to the suit filed by Pokot South MP David Pkosing.

The Jubilee MP had named Mr Odinga, Kalonzo Musyoka, Musalia Mudavadi and Moses Wetang'ula as respondents in the case.

In his submissions to the court, Pkosing claims that the NASA principals have hatched a campaign to throw Kenya into a constitutional crisis.

“The said campaign has also sought to secure various legal, administrative and operational reforms before the fresh presidential elections ordered by the Supreme Court is held. The said fresh presidential elections must be held by 31st October, 2017,” the Jubilee MP stated in court papers.

The MP has sought orders to issue a declaration that failure to participate in the repeat election would be an act of treason and contempt of court.

Odinga’s team has consistently declared that there would be no election on the October 26 date that was set by the IEBC, unless their demands are fully met.
