NASA forms Assumption of Office Committee for Raila ‘swearing in’

The National Super Alliance (NASA) coalition has formed an ‘Assumption of Office Committee’ that will be handling preparations for the planned ‘swearing in’ of opposition leader Raila Odinga.

After announcing that Mr. Odinga will take the ‘oath of office’ at the end of this month, NASA on Thursday issued a statement stating that the committee will be unveiled soon.

“We are of course alive to the fact that the public is very eager to hear about the swearing in of the People’s President and Deputy President. This is on course. It will be the biggest public event that Kenya has seen since independence,” read part of the statement.

“An Assumption of Office Committee, which is already in place and working will be unveiled in the coming days, and that Committee will be keeping you informed.”

Citizen Digital has learnt that the National Super Alliance (NASA) opposition coalition intends to ‘swear in’ Odinga at Uhuru Park grounds in Nairobi after a series of rallies and meetings in several counties.

Beginning this weekend, Raila Odinga will embark on a tour of western Kenya with trips to Busia and Kakamega where People’s Assembly gatherings will be held.

“This Sunday, we head to Western Kenya to continue with people-driven initiative to ensure electoral justice and self-determination in our country. The details of the program and nature of events to be held in Kakamega will be disclosed by the NASA leadership in Western Kenya,” said NASA.

North-Eastern region is also in the opposition’s radar with a planned joint meeting in Garissa town, before the leaders head to Mombasa for a rally in the run up to the ‘swearing in’.

Narok, Migori and Kisii counties have also been scheduled to launch the people’s assemblies with Gusii stadium expected to host the last rally before the ‘inauguration’.
