Why Farah Maalim will not be part of Raila ‘swearing-in’

By Fay Ngina | December 4th 2017

Former Deputy Speaker of the National Assembly of Kenya Farah Maalim on Monday 4 November said that he will not take part in National Super Alliance (NASA) leader Raila Odinga ‘swearing-in’ plans slated for December 12, Jamhuri Day.

Mr Maalim said that he has not been part of any plans to ‘swear-in’ Raila Odinga terming the process as a ‘recipe for chaos’.

“As someone with a legal background I will like to uphold the law. I have not been part of any process that is arranging for the swearing in of Raila Odinga. I will hesitate endorsing any 'swearing in' because that is a recipe for chaos,” said Mr Maalim during an interview with AM Live.

The Opposition leader announced that he would be sworn-in as the President of Kenyan through the People’s Assembly. Raila said this while addressing his supporters along Manyanja Road, Eastlands during the inauguration ceremony of President Uhuru Kenyatta.

“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,” said Raila.
