“Odinga’s swearing-in is a recipe for turmoil” says Farah Maalim


Wiper deputy party leader Farah Maalim has termed Raila Odinga’s swearing-in as a recipe for turmoil.

Maalim said that the move will not put a stop to the political stalemate in the country.

It is uncertain if he speaks for the official position which is led by Kalonzo Musyoka who is Raila’s running mate.

Mr Raila announced he will be declared Kenya’s ruler through the People’s Assembly.

Maalim, former National Assembly deputy speaker, said he will “hesitate to back the notion of inducting another president”.

“I am someone with a legal backdrop and who would like to defend the law. I have not been part of the process of the accord for the induction,” he said.

He cited the irony of NASA disrespecting the same legal framework they applauded when they nullified the August 8 election “the law is an ass’’ he quipped.

He said NASA should try to find and use new methods to push changes they want executed.

Raila and other Opposition leaders have continued to be defiant in their push for reforms and a better Kenya, which they have referred to as Canaan (the Promised Land.)

The inaugural ceremony will take place in undisclosed venue, the invitation cards have already been sent out.

In its Telegram channel, the party said the venue will be communicated once the attendees are vetted
