NASA Co- principal and former vice president Kalonzo Musyoka opposed plans to swear him as the deputy president of NASA Alliance.
Mr. Musyoka feared unnecessary deaths of supporters. His fears were also guided by lack of clear road map on what would follow after taking presidential oath and ruined legacy.
“Kalonzo was much concerned about his legacy, planned execution of supporters by police and lack of clear road map on what next after the event,” a source told the Star.
The former Vice President demurred the move to swear him through his close confidant Farah Maalim on grounds that it would badly dent his international reputation.
Further, senior legal adviser James Orengo is said to have gone blank when asked to give clear direction on the matter.
NASA had planned to hold the much hyped inauguration ceremony at Tononoka grounds in Mombasa.
“We had settled on Tononoka only to be called for a meeting with our principals. They told us that they would make an announcement,” said Oduor Ongwen.
Also opposing the move on similar grounds were Ida Odinga, Moses Wetangula and Musalia Mudavadi.
