A section of Jubilee Members of Parliament on Sunday revealed details of an alleged secret presidential swearing-In ceremony organised by ODM leader Raila Odinga.

According to the legislators, the former Prime Minister was planning to declare himself the President if he is defeated in the August 8 Election, then proceed to hold a swearing-in ceremony at an undisclosed place in Tanzania.

Speaking during a political rally in Chuka town, Kikuyu MP Kimani Ichung’wah accused Odinga of colluding with the Whites to carrying out the ploy.

“We know Mr Odinga plans to declare himself the winner and swear himself in in Tanzania if defeated in the August 8 elections,” Ichung’wah was quoted by the Nation.

The lawmaker added that if the tallying centre set to be established by the National Super Alliance (NASA) will announce the election results, then the Opposition will have committed treason.

Also at the gathering, Chuka/Igambang’ombe MP Muthomi Njuki noted that: "the Opposition can establish a parallel tallying centre to that of IEBC but cannot be allowed to announce results because this is likely to cause war in the country."

At the same time, Gatundu South MP Moses Kuria exuded confidence in a Jubilee win in the upcoming polls adding that Odinga had already sensed defeat.

“President Uhuru Kenyatta must win because Jubilee Party has an agenda for Kenyans,” Kuria emphasised.

This comes days after the Independent Electoral and boundaries Commission (IEBC) chairman, Wafula Chebukati, allowed the NASA leaders monitor the election results.

Mr Chebukati divulged that: “Parties recognize that it is the mandate of the IEBC to announce and declare the results of an election. However, political parties and media may monitor, tally and verify the results for their own internal use”.
