Rift brews in Kenya’s main opposition alliance over planned swearing in of Raila

Controversy is brewing in Kenya’s main opposition alliance NASA over claims that the coalition is forcing its legislators to sign an affidavit pledging support for the planned swearing in of Raila Odinga and Kalonzo Musyoka on the 30th of this month.

In the affidavit, oppostion legislators and Senators are required to append their signatures acknowledging Raila as the People’s President of the Republic of Kenya having been duly elected by the people of Kenya on August 8, 2017.

Kakamega Senator Cleophas Malala says the process is aimed at identifying the Member of Parliaments who are not supporting the move.

However, Homa Bay Woman Representative Gladys Wanga has dismissed those claims, saying the process is voluntary.

Meanwhile, speaking after a Wiper Party meeting, attended by leader Kalonzo Musyoka, Makueni Governor Kivutha Kibwana has given Jubilee a 30-day ultimatum to ensure they engage NASA in dialogue, failure to which they will proceed to swearing in Raila and Kalonzo as President and deputy president respectively.
