Raila chances of Taking power is doomed former ODM mp explains

By    

The law does not support what the NASA team wants to do. They know very well that when someone is sworn in as President, you must first be declared the winner by the IEBC chairman.
The registrar of the Supreme Court should preside over the swearing-in of the President-elect and the Deputy President-elect in the presence of the Chief Justice. If indeed that is what will happen on January 30, then we will have two centres of power.
Read
But if the IEBC and the Supreme Court will not have a say in NASA leader Raila Odinga’s swearing-in, then the entire event will be illegal.
The person sworn in as President becomes the Commander-in-Chief of the Kenya Defence Forces. Will this be applicable after Raila’s swearing-in?
After that kind of an illegality, there are proper measures that will be taken in accordance with the Constitution.
Why is the Christian clergy not condemning NASA supporters who bandy around the Bible for Raila’s intentions? Why use the holy book to threaten to swear-in Raila? Their silence over this issue has really surprised me.
The agenda of Raila is to fight the economy of this country because once he is sworn in, then some people will consider him as their President, cause mayhem and affect the economy. He is precipitating civil disobedience by trying to create another arm of leadership.
If it is true that the former Prime Minister is a reformist, then he must accept that, in politics, there are always losers and winners. President Uhuru Kenyatta won and he lost.
Raila has a sizeable number of followers in this nation, but, at the end of the day, he did not win the Presidency.
If indeed Raila does not recognize Uhuru as President, why is he calling for dialogue with him? How do you negotiate with someone that you do not recognize?
Well, Uhuru and Raila should find a way of talking so that Raila does not go through this way of civil disobedience.
If Raila had won the election and the things he is doing now were done to him, how would he feel? Tomorrow, it might be vice-versa and he would find himself in the same situation that Uhuru is in currently.
If he continues with this plan, he will face the same Judiciary he ran to in challenging Uhuru’s victory.

Raila makes U-turn amid swearing-in dilemma

By    

Raila Odinga's ODM party may have after all succumbed to pressure on representation to influential Public Service Commission committee, a source has intimated.
Prior to Monday's meeting, NASA affiliates among them Wiper and ANC had threatened to pull out of inauguration plans, a move that could have led the orange party to change tact.
"They raised fundamental issues and Raila has considered them with consultations. ODM shall relinquish one PSC slot to Wiper," said the source who spoke in confidence.
Before parliament went for recess, Borabu MP Ben Momanyi had accused ODM of mistrust leading to temporary halt of submission of members to PSC.
And his determination, the source says, may have borne fruits since he is said to have been considered for the slot.
"Wiper will be represented by Momanyi and I am yet to know who will suffer fate but it is likely to be one of ODM representatives."
Momanyi is one of vocal Wiper MPs and is is said to be juxtapositioning himself for Nyamira governorship in 2022.
Initially, ODM had proposed Aisha Jumwa and Gladys Wanga for the position and it is likely Raila may have sacrificed Wanga.
