The first group of National Super Alliance (NASA) supporters has arrived in the city ahead leader Raila Odinga’s prohibited inauguration at Uhuru Park on Tuesday.
Mr Odinga and Kalonzo Musyoka were to be sworn-in as leaders of the People’s Republic of Kenya since the Opposition does not consider Uhuru Kenyatta a legitimately elected president.
According to NASA chief executive officer Norman Magaya,however,the tuned has changed;
“We are swearing-in Raila as the president of the Republic of Kenya, not the people’s president.”
“The first batch [of supporters] arrived in the city today morning. Others will come in during the day in a coordinated way,” he said and noted there will be no change of venue.”Magaya said during an interview with KTN News.(Video below)
Nairobi county, however, has indefinitely cordoned Uhuru Park grounds for renovations, and police say its a no-go zone.
On Sunday, county police commander Japheth Koome declared the park out of bounds.
Despite the warning, the Opposition has maintained the park remains their number one choice.
“Our first option is Uhuru Park, second option Uhuru Park and third option Uhuru Park…,” he said during the interview.
“If all options are not possible, then our last option will be Uhuru Park .. the swearing-in is a fight that we are willing to take. We have no intention of changing the venue for the ceremony.”
Magaya has further announced supporters should be seated by 8.30 am so the ceremony takes the shortest time possible.
