A church and a group calling itself the “Nairobi business community” have applied to use the iconic Uhuru Park on January 30 — the same day and venue NASA plans to swear-in Mr Odinga as the people’s president.

“We have received requests from the Nairobi business community and a church and we expect the payment to be done on Monday,” said a source privy to The Daily Nation.

Mr Wilfred Kamau, the chairman of the Nairobi Business Community, said they have been given the go-ahead by the Nairobi County Government to hold a free medical camp at Uhuru Park on January 30.

The development comes in the wake of a worsening political stand-off between Jubilee and NASA, and calls for Uhuru President Kenyatta to show goodwill for dialogue.

Jubilee contends that such a move would be treasonous,punishable by death.

It is still unclear the implications that the two applications will have on the swearing-in venue.
