Meanwhile, NASA has insisted that Odinga will be sworn in at Uhuru Park despite the venue being closed by Nairobi County for "renovation."Opposition supporters and police are likely to clash if NASA doesn't change the venue or cancel the whole oath plan.Religious leaders and the international community have been pushing both Odinga and President Uhuru Kenyatta to hold dialogue to no avail.
