Raila dares those against his swearing in to arrest him


The National Super Alliance leader Raila Odinga has dared those against his swearing in to arrest him, dismissed claims that he is afraid of being sworn-in as president.

Mr. Odinga, accompanied by his deputy Kalonzo Musyoka, assured their supporters that the January 30 ceremony will proceed as planned.

“On January 30, I will be sworn in and this time it’s a real deal and anyone one saying its treason let him come and arrest us.” Said Raila.

Attorney General Githu Muigai had earlier told the Opposition leaders that the oath amounts to treason since President Uhuru Kenyatta has assumed office.

“The event is not only about carrying the Bible and saying ‘I swear’, we want to make it real,” Raila said during a rally in Kakamega on Sunday.

“We want this swearing-in process to be inclusive of all Kenyans. That’s why we are discussing before we go ahead.”

Raila and other leaders who spoke at the event took a swipe at the Jubilee government for harassing NASA supporters during and after the presidential elections.

He alleged that the government has murdered over 300 people following the dispute over the August 8 election.

The Opposition chief called for the constitutional reforms on sections of the 2010 Constitution that have ‘grey areas’.

NASA has been pushing for electoral justice on grounds the October 26 vote, which they abandoned, did not reflect the will of Kenyans.

Raila said the repeat election was not legitimate hence their withdrawal from the contest, adding that the Wafula Chebukati-led IEBC was being controlled by Jubilee.

He met with leaders from the Western region at Kakamega Golf Hotel before holding rallies around the town to drum up support for his swearing-in fete.

Mr. Musyoka, who returned to the country recently after a long stay in Germany attending to his sick wife, said he is still strong in the coalition.

“This serious business that we are involved in and we won’t give up easily,” Kalonzo said.

He took swipe at the foreign governments that rubber-stamped the disputed election.

“We have a meaningless democracy and we tell foreign governments to respect our decision,” the Wiper leader added.

The leaders called upon their supporters to remain calm and avoid any violence.

“We won’t destroy our nation. Let them be the one to take the blame. What we need is self-purification,” Kalonzo said.

The leaders resolved that the Western region will not recognise the Uhuru Kenyatta presidency.

Raila was accompanied by co-principals Musalia Mudavadi (ANC), Moses Wetang’ula (Ford-K), governors, a host MPs, and Senators.

Mudavadi said Kenyans were bitter because their right to vote democratically was stolen.

“Our movement wants to make sure that the future elections will be fair and free of manipulation,” he said.

For his part, Wetangula said they want to make the country a better place under Raila’s leadership.

“We won the August 8 election but the results were manipulated to favour Jubilee Party,” Wetangula said, “We can’t keep on seeing a nation that stands on a lie in each of the government policy.”

Kakamega Senator Cleophas Malala said all elected leaders under NASA coalition will sign an affidavit to recognize Raila as Kenya’s president.

“Any MP who won’t sign the affidavit will be seen as a traitor and a Jubilee mole,” Malala said.

NASA coalition’s strategist David Ndii said the current regime forced its way into office through electoral prejudice.
