In Summary
  • A senior ODM official Wednesday told Nation that Nasa had already identified the ‘assumption of office’ team and they could be unveiled in Nairobi on Friday.

  • Chief Justice David Maraga had already presided over the swearing-in of President Kenyatta at Kasarani stadium.

The opposition National Super Alliance is this week expected to unveil the faces of individuals who will be responsible for the ‘assumption of office’ of its leader Raila Odinga.

Nasa has set January 30 as the day Mr Odinga and Wiper leader Kalonzo Musyoka will be sworn in as the ‘people’s president’ and deputy, respectively.

Nation has learnt that the ‘assumption of office’ team was to be unveiled on Friday during a two-day retreat of all elected opposition leaders in Naivasha but the meeting was cancelled  yesterday.

It remains unclear whether the team would still be unveiled in the wake of the postponement of the retreat.

National Assembly Minority Leader John Mbadi on Wednesday referred Nation to the technical committee led by Nasa strategist David Ndii for details on the swearing-in plans.

“There is a committee specifically dealing with the swearing-in programme, their members have the details, but again they may not want to make the faces of the team dealing with the assumption of office known at this time,” Mr Mbadi said.
