Government latest announcement on Uhuru's swearing-in after Nasa threat

The Government has made then decision after Nasa made true its earlier plan to swear-in Mr Odinga.

Mr Kiraithe’s sentiments come in the backdrop of sensational claims by Siaya Senator James Orengo who quipped of a plan to have a parallel swearing-in ceremony for Mr Odinga, should their plan to block Uhuru’s swearing-in flop.

“The law is the law and Kenya has adequate capacity to enforce it. What is legally binding to be done shall be done whether one or two people like it or not,” Mr Kiraithe said in reference to Mr Orengo’s exposed plan.

He added: “If you are not happy with the Constitution as it is, there are avenues in Parliament and a referendum. These other noises will only destabilise this country.”

Mr Odinga, in his address to the press after Mr Kenyatta was declared the president-elect in October 26 polls, said that he would not recognise the presidency of Mr Kenyatta, vowing to frustrate his efforts.

In the meantime, as the coalition awaits the election within 90 days, thanks to the formed People’s Assembly, Nasa lawmakers have been sent to county assemblies to help MCAs debate motions spread in19 counties they enjoy a strong following.

Should the motion pass in at least 24 counties, then law provides, will not recognise Uhuru’s presidential legitimacy and will declare the August 8 and October 26 elections as “invalid, null and void,” Nasa strategic team said.

Mr Kiraithe, however, said that MPs will not be allowed to sit at the county assemblies.

“Kenyans should protect their institutions. If a man who was elected by the people to go to Parliament doesn’t like the idea, he cannot decide to walk into a county assembly, he has no space there,” Mr Kiraithe affirmed.
