NASA announces 1 thing they will keep secret ahead of Raila’s swearing-in
The Opposition has revealed what will remain a secret ahead of the planned inauguration ceremony.
Addressing the press on Friday, a section of the Opposition lawmakers disclosed that they would keep secret the list of guests who will be gracing Odinga's inauguration.
The team has however maintained that the date for swearing-in remain December 12, a day Kenya celebrates Jamhuri Day.
The choice of the date is understood to coincide with the national event President Uhuru Kenyatta will be presiding over, at Kasarani Stadium in Nairobi.
Already police have warned that they will not allow any public gathering in Nairobi to swear in the former Prime Minister as the “People’s President."
Top security sources privy to the security plans for Jamhuri Day celebrations said police are under instructions not to allow gatherings in Nairobi except the official ceremony to be presided by Kenyatta.
This may set the stage for a confrontation between Mr Odinga’s supporters and the police as Kenya’s post-election crisis drags on. But it is not clear where the parallel event by Raila Odinga will be conducted.
On Thursday, AG Githu Muigai warned Mr Odinga against taking ‘oath of office,’ adding that such a move would “attract treason, whose fate is death.”
The warning from Prof Githu came in just after the United Sates warned Mr Odinga against proceeding with the swearing-in and instead demanded that the ODM leader holds talks with the President.
