Uhuru's special offer to Raila ahead of inauguration

Karibu my brother your event will not be historic

The event will be held at the Kasarani Sports Stadium.

The invitation was extended by Chief of Staff in the Office of the President Joseph Kinyua who is also heading the Committee of the Assumption of Office of the President.

“The seven other presidential candidates and their running mates in the last presidential election have been invited for the ceremony,” he said.

This comes amid announcement by Opposition leaders that they will be holding a parallel event on the same day.

NASA threatened to swear in Mr. Odinga in case the Jubilee party proceeds with the inauguration plans. The leaders have opposed Mr. Kenyatta’s presidency highlighting that it is illegitimate.

Mr. Kinyua rubbished events organized by NASA noting: "The swearing-in of the president on Tuesday is a historic day. Any other function will be like me choosing to have tea, and which is my right, but there will be nothing historic about it”.

The Chief of Staff stated that it was necessary for the country to move away from politics and focus on development.

"As a people who would want us to move together as one, we will plead that it is not necessary to have any other public function that day.

We can bring out the issues we want to be discussed later. We should work towards a cohesive, united Kenyan society,” Kinyua said.
