NASA Co-principal and former presidential running mate Stephen Kalonzo Musyoka may have to be sworn in  in Germany as Mr Odinga’s deputy, the People’s assembly organising committee said Saturday.

“We are still working out the modalities and we will soon decide whether he will be sworn in in Germany or he will come here briefly and then fly back,” said Oduor Ong’wen, a member of the committee.

Mr Musyoka, the Wiper Party leader, has been missing in action since early October. He has been in Germany where his wife, Pauline Musyoka, is said to be hospitalised and receiving specialized treatment.

During a press conference held in Nairobi, the members, who included controversial economist, David Ndii, promised their supporters that the venue of the inauguration event would be announced on Sunday. They however said they would not preempt the day’s itinerary.

In spite attempts to dissuade him from going ahead with the “swearing-in” ceremony slated for Tuesday, Mr Odinga has insisted that it is within the law as he does not recognise  Uhuru Kenyatta’s presidency.

The diplomatic community does not think it is a good idea for Odinga to go on with the plans while the country’s Attorney General, Githu Muigai, has termed “any swearing in of a person not declared the winner of a presidential contest by the electoral board” as committing high treason whose punishment – if proven – is death.

The organising committee said plans are in top gear for the event which has created unprecedented anxiety in the country.
