National Super Alliance (NASA) leader Raila Odinga will be sworn in as President ahead of the Supreme Court ruling, National Resistance Movement (NRM) leaders have vowed.
The leaders, who were addressing their supporters at Jacaranda Grounds in Embakasi, said they will use the Constitution in the revolution if the Supreme Court rules in favor of President Uhuru Kenyatta.
Raila, who is expected back into the country on Thursday from the US after back to back meetings with US lawmakers, boycotted the October 26 repeat presidential election after the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) failed to meet their irreducible minimums.
Siaya Senator James Orengo made it crystal clear that the NRM is preparing the country for a revolution against Uhuru and warned Jubilee not to take the coalition lightly.
“We are using the law and the Constitution in this revolution. During the Kanu regime we wanted multi-partyism, but President Daniel Moi said no. Then we went to the people – did we get multi-partyism or not?” Orengo told the mammoth crowd that had turned up for the rally.
It is yet to be seen on what constitution basis Raila will be sworn in as President. If the President elect Uhuru Kenyatta win is not voided by the Supreme Court, the Chief Justice David Maraga will swear him in to serve the remainder of his term.
Critic turned supporter of Uhuru Kenyatta, blogger Robert Alai, intimated in a series of tweets that a section of Jubilee leaders support Raila Odinga. The leaders, he argued, are extremely uncomfortable with Deputy President William Ruto ascending to the presidency in 2022.
NASA is seriously planning to swear in Raila if Uhuru is sworn in. It is serious. A good number of Jubilee losers in Central Kenya and Rift Valley are supporting Raila on this regard. Some of the leaders campaigned for people not to vote in Jubilee strongholds‘, Robert Alai shared on twitter.
