- Ngilu has urged NASA supporters not to give up on Raila after he postponed his much publicized swearing-in.
- She wants supporters to remain loyal to Mr. Odinga despite the disappointment they suffered after the NASA principal cancelled his swearing-in to a later date.
Kitui Governor Charity Ngilu has called on NASA supporters not to give up on Raila Odinga.
Addressing locals during a tour of Kitui Town on Tuesday, the governor said that Raila remains the ‘savior’ who will liberate the country from Jubilee’s poor rule.
The former Lands Cabinet Secretary said that the NASA principal is committed to liberate the country, adding that the postponement of his swearing-in should not be seen or interpreted as a sign of cowardice.
“I know Raila Odinga very well, he has not given up on his mission and I urge his supporters not to give up on him because he means well,” she said on Tuesday.
Ngilu observed that if Raila had given up, Kenya will not have been where it is today.
She said that Raila has fought hard for the democracy and the constitutional rights Kenyans are enjoying today.
The governor added that they will stand with Raila come rain or sunshine, adding that NASA’s quest for reforms will not stop.
The NARC party leader said that the country will head to the ‘dogs’ if Raila gives up on quest for reforms.
She pleaded with Kenyans to remain firm and reject Jubilee’s alleged dictatorship and oppression rule.
Mr. Odinga’s planned swearing-in that had been planned for Tuesday (yesterday) was cancelled to a later date.
The postponement of the much publicized event left Odinga’s supporters and politicians allied to NASA disenchanted.
NASA has since clarified that the swearing-in has not been abandoned as it has been reported assuring its supporters that a new date for the coronation will be announced soon.
Raila Odinga has maintained that he does not recognize Uhuru Kenyatta’s presidency and that he will be sworn-in as president by the People’s Assembly since he allegedly won the August 8 presidential election.
