Mandago: NASA has tried all ways which have not worked, let them back President Uhuru

By Waweru Titus | December 2nd 2017

Uasin Gishu Governor Jackson Mandago has asked National Super Alliance (NASA) leader Raila Odinga to accept that he lost in elections.

Mr Mandago said on Friday it was time for the NASA coalition to join President Uhuru Kenyatta in building the nation.

"Those who wanted dialogue like NASA can now come for it instead of resisting because we now have President Kenyatta in power.

"There was no way everyone was going to win elections and those who lost must accept and move on. NASA has tried all ways which have not worked. Let them back Uhuru," said Mandago.

The Governor added that Opposition leaders should accept the President was legally sworn in and focus on uniting Kenyans.

"We must now move forward as a county and avoid waste of time on political gossip," he pointed out.

Raila sent out invitations to his swearing in scheduled to take place on Jamhuri Day.

The invitation posted on NASA’s Telegram channel on Friday, stated the swearing in would take place on December 12, 2017.

The venue of the inauguration, however, was not been disclosed.

It also indicated guests would also be vetted before gracing the controversial ceremony.

The Judiciary also stated on Friday that it had not received any formal communication from NASA about the inauguration.

"The Judiciary has not been notified on the inauguration ceremony planned by the Opposition party," said Chief Registrar of the Judiciary Anne Amadi.

Ms Amadi spoke at Pride Inn Hotel.
