National Super Alliance (NASA) coalition has announced countrywide campaigns aimed at preparing its supporters for the swearing in of its leaders Raila and Kalonzo as the people’s president and deputy president respectively.
While addressing a gathering of enthusiastic supporters in Kakamega County on Sunday, January 7, the NASA coalition leaders once again echoed their strategy to proceed with the thorny oath-taking plan.
According to the coalition, an all-inclusive program for the inauguration agenda had been put in place by their advisers and they will stick to it.
The opposition leaders fixed their inauguration date on January 30, 2018 even as calls for dialogue continue.
The major announcements were made during launch of western region’s People’s Assembly at Golf Hotel in Kakamega town. It so happened that the coalition’s leader, Raila, was also celebrating his 73rd birthday. He was presented with a special birthday cake designed in the form of a Bible.
There was mounting pressure from supporters to have the NASA leaders sworn in immediately but the leaders urged for more patience. They held that they were following a strict program complete with a five-point agenda that had been drawn up by experts.
Meanwhile, Kalonzo is still pushing for a dialogue between NASA and President Uhuru Kenyatta. As previously reported by Tuko.co.ke, the former vice president as well as Wiper Party leader stated that dialogue is the only thing that will stop their planned swearing in.
