MPs issue warning ahead of Raila's swear-in
SUMMARY
  • NASA MPs issued a stern warning against anyone seeking to abandon the quest for ‘electoral justice’ ahead of Raila's swearing-in
  •  Already 50 of the MPs have signed an affidavit in support of the NASA leader’s swearing-in

National Super Alliance (NASA) Members of Parliament (MPs) in a statement issued a stern warning against people who would seek to abandon the quest for ‘electoral justice’ ahead of Raila Odinga’s swearing-in ceremony scheduled to take place on Tuesday, January 30.

“In closing, we would like to issue a stern political warning to those who would seek to abandon this quest for electoral justice. Kenyans are watching. The people are watching! If you want to negotiate with the thieves, do so in your individual capacity, do not pretend to speak for the rest of us. We urge wananchi to ask your elected leader whether they have signed this instrument and if they have not, we leave it to the wisdom of wananchi to deal with them politically,” read part of the statement.


The NASA MPs while addressing the press said that they recognize the Opposition leader as the ‘bona fide’ president of Kenya and Kalonzo Musyoka as his Deputy. Already 50 of the MPs have signed an affidavit in support of the NASA leader’s swearing-in.

"I recognize Raila and Kalonzo as president and deputy president of the People’s Republic having been duly elected by the people of Kenya in exercise of their sovereign power granted under the Constitution of Kenya (2010),” read part of the affidavit.

The loyalty pledged signed by the NASA MPs noted that the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) failed to comply with the Supreme Court’s orders to open the agency's servers.

“Had the IEBC complied with the Supreme Court’s orders and opened the servers, those results would have shown the winner of the presidential election was Raila,” said the affidavit.
