The National Super Alliance (NASA) has written to 11 governors whose counties have approved the formation of People’s Assembly, requesting for a venue where opposition chief Raila Odinga swearing in ceremony will be held.
The team preparing for Odinga's inauguration wrote to Governors Anyang’ Nyong’o (Kisumu), Charity Ngilu (Kitui), Hassan Joho (Mombasa), Cornel Rasanga (Siaya), Cyprian Awiti (Homa Bay), Amason Kingi (Kilifi), Okoth Obado (Migori), Kivutha Kibwana (Makueni), Odeke Ojaamong (Busia), Wycliffe Oparanya (Kakamega) and Wilber Ottichilo (Vihiga) requesting them to arrange for a venue where Odinga will take Oath of Office as people's president.
”Your county having passed the People’s Assembly motion, the presidential inauguration team is requesting your office to provide a venue for this high level event in your county,” the letters read in part.
“It’s our hope that our request meets your kind consideration. Looking forward to hearing from you.”
Raila announced he will be sworn in as the head of state on December 12th, a day when the country celebrates independence day.
On Friday, Nasa named a seven-member People’s Assembly steering committee headed by strategist David Ndii to push for its agenda. Other members of the team include Judy Sijeny, Hamida Kibwana, Dr Mutakha Kangu, Oduor Ong’wen, Koitamet ole Kina and former East African Legislative Assembly MP Peter Mathuki.
