"You can even declare yourselves pope" Government issues tough condition to NASA

The NASA coalition has given notice of swearing in of their leader Raila Odinga

Government spokesman Eric Kiraithe, stated that county assemblies would not be allowed to enact the bill seeking to establish the People's Assembly.

Kiraithe stated that Kenyans were free to make all manner of declarations on the condition that public resources were not used.

Kiraithe stated that the constitution does not give MCAs any powers to pass the bills which have since been passed in some of the counties dominated by NASA-allied parties.

“You can sit anywhere with your friends and declare yourself the pope as long as you're not using public resources,” Kiraithe stated.

The Government spokesman also announced that action would be taken on some Members of County Assemblies (MCAs) who have passed the bill on the People’s Assembly, which he termed as unconstitutional.

Kiraithe stated that the government would deduct money from MCAs who engaged in the passage of the People’s Assembly, advanced by the NASA coalition.

So far, 11 counties aligned with the Opposition have passed the bill on the People’s Assembly.

In Kitui, debate was postponed after the High Court issued a temporary order blocking the passage of the bill until its constitutionality is determined.

The statement came amid NASA's threat to swear in their leader Raila Odinga, if President Uhuru Kenyatta went on take his oath of office.
