Kalonzo Wants To Test Legality Of Swearing In First

Wiper leader Kalonzo Musyoka has dismissed reports that he will be sworn-in as the People’s Deputy President on February 28.

Speaking in Machakos on Tuesday, the Nasa principal termed the claims “propaganda and Jubilee traps” and said the announcement will be made “later”.

It was reported that Kalonzo will take his oath on this date at Uhuru Park in Nairobi. His co-principal Raila Odinga took his as the People’s President on January 30, a ceremony that he, Musalia Mudavadi (Amani National Congress) and Bungoma Senator Moses Wetang’ula (Ford Kenya) missed.

Kalonzo said Nasa is not about anarchy as it is a group of serious individuals.

“We are serious leaders and we mean well for Kenya. I have never been a coward and I will never be one,” he said.

It was said Kalonzo’s oath will also take place at Uhuru Park and that Mudavadi and Wetang’ula agreed to attend.

The three said they missed Raila’s ceremony for security reasons but their explanation did not stop speculation about the coalition’s stability.

According to Kalonzo, he wants more discussions with legal experts on the legality of his swearing in days after Raila Odinga was sworn in as People’s President.
