NRM distances itself from “postponement” of Raila’s swearing-in

Who is fooling who

Through Miguna Miguna who joined NRM as a general, they did not participate in the postponement of the swearing in ceremony scheduled for 12 December.

The NRM wishes to state that it had no role in the "postponement" of the swearing in of The People's President made by yesterday. That was 's decision. will give a way forward in the next day or so. Please remain calm & focused.” reads Miguna Miguna's Tweet

After the postponement of the highly anticipated fete at Tononoka Grounds in Mombasa to swear-in Nasa principals as President and Deputy President which was announced by Musalia Mudavadi, ODM leader Raila Odinga has made a rather contradicting statement.

“The legality of Mr Odinga’s swearing in was based on the simple fact that he had won the 8th August election. The Supreme Court had nullified the declaration of Uhuru Kenyatta as President, but it did not nullify the result of that election,” Mr Odinga’s political adviser, Salim Lone said in a statement on Sunday.

On whether the process would be legal, Mr Odinga has slammed last week’s Attorney General Prof Githu Muigai sentiments that such a move would attract treason, adding that the process would have been legal, even as his key legal adviser and Siaya Senator James Orengo remained mum on the issue.

After weeks of dancing with the public's emotions, NASA chief Raila Odinga will not be sworn in on Tuesday following the change of mind at last minute by his team on Sunday. This followed a day-long meeting with his team, he backed down from his vow with a whimper.
