National Super Alliance (NASA) leader Raila Odinga has announced his swearing-in date as the ‘people’s president’.
Speaking in Kakamega County on Sunday, Raila vowed that he would be sworn in on January 30, 2018 together with Wiper Leader Kalonzo Musyoka.
The Opposition chief also dared the Government to arrest him and NASA leaders after the inauguration. “On January 30, I will be sworn in and this time it’s a real deal and anyone saying its treason let him come and arrest us.
The event is not only about carrying the Bible and saying ‘I swear’, we want to make it real. We want this swearing-in process to be inclusive of all Kenyans.
That’s why we are discussing before we go ahead,” said Raila. The former Prime Minister was accompanied by NASA co-principals Musalia Mudavadi, Moses Wetang’ula and other leaders.
Kenyans on Sunday also took to Twitter using the hashtag #HappyBirthdayRaila to send happy birthday messages to Raila as he turned 73.
Opposition leaders and supporters in Western region surprised the Opposition leader with a cake in celebration of his 73rd birthday, moments before the start of People’s Assembly forum in Kakamega.
Raila arrived in Kakamega Sunday morning accompanied by Kalonzo Musyoka, Musalia Mudavadi and Moses Wetang’ula among other NASA leaders for the People’s Assembly session.
