Judiciary Breaks its Silence on Raila’s PlannedInstallation as President
The Judiciary has broken its silence in the alleged plan to swear-in National Super Alliance (NASA) leader Raila Odinga.
Speaking on Friday, Chief Registrar of the Judiciary, Anne Amadi said the judiciary had not received any notices on the planned inauguration of the opposition leader.
“The Judiciary has not been notified on the inauguration ceremony planned by the Opposition party,” Amadi said while responding to a question by a journalist at Pride Inn Hotel on whether the judiciary will be part of Odinga’s swearing-in.
On Tuesday, Raila announced he would take oath of office as the fifth President of Kenya on December 12th.
“Uhuru Kenyatta is not the president of Kenya. We do not recognise the October 28 election, that was a fake election. 83% of the population boycotted the election,” he said.
“Nyinyi mnajua Raila Odinga si muoga… Hapa Uganda, Besigye aliapishwa kama Rais, wiki jana kule Zimbabwe Mnangagwa aliapisha. Basi, tutaapisha, hatutaki kuapisha kama Besigye, tutaapisha kama Mnangagwa ambaye aliapishwa na akaingia Ikulu,” he added.
“I will be sworn in as President of Kenya on Jamhuri Day (December 12) through the people’s assembly, and go to State House. We will meet to discuss the matter and direct on the way forward,” Raila said hours after President Uhuru Kenyatta’s inauguration for a second term.
Speaking during an interview with CNN this week, Raila declined to shed more light in his swearing in, saying a team of experts was dealing with the matter.
“This matter is being discussed within our coalition and among our experts and the strategic team,” Mr Odinga divulged.
“I rather want to leave it to them to come up with a clear roadmap on how we are going to get there,” he noted.
Amadi administered the oath office to President Kenyatta and Deputy President William Ruto in the presence of Chief Justice David Maraga at Kasarani Stadium on Tuesday.
