5 things Raila Odinga has told the BBC this morning

Here are the details.

Despite the Supreme Court ruling which upheld his Uhuru’s re-election, Mr Odinga said in an exclusive interview Tuesday morning, did not change Kenyan’s minds about Uhuru’s legitimacy.

"We will ensure electoral justice. The struggle will continue through civil disobedience, demonstrations and boycotts until there is electoral justice," Mr Odinga told the London based media.

Mr Odinga, after turning down calls to have him sworn in today by his allies, said that his coalition will continue to push for electoral reforms through civil disobedience.

He has hinted at renewing his quest for electoral justice through reforms at the Wafula Chebukati polls team – Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC).

"We need to reform the IEBC and ensure an independent judiciary and the neutrality of security forces," Raila said, adding that the Opposition would still the People's Assemblies to push for major changes. The People’s Assemblies, however, suffered a major blow last week, when the High Court ruled that their constitution was illegal.

The new sentiments by Nasa leader Mr Raila Odinga comes even after a local daily on Tuesday reported that Raila’s brother, Oburu Odinga, held closed door meetings with National Assembly Majority leader Aden Duale, in which Nasa was given a raft of proposals by Jubilee, including appointment of his lieutenants to key parastatals in the country.

Earlier, Gatundu South lawmaker Moses Kuria quipped that the former Premier would be sworn in later today at Jacaranda Grounds in Nairobi in an event parallel to Uhuru Kenyatta’s which is set to start at 10am.
