Kenya’s opposition leader Raila to form own government after swearing-in
Kenya’s opposition leader Raila Odinga has vowed to form a rival government when he is sworn in on January 30.
He spoke as 13 opposition MPs said they will have all the National Super Alliance (NASA) affiliated lawmakers to support the oath by swearing affidavits declaring they will only recognise Odinga as president.
In an interview with Voice of America, the opposition leader said his oath of office will be based on the results of the August 8, 2017 election, which he claims he won.He says he will form a cabinet and run a government even if it will be from exile.
President Kenyatta has warned that the law will take its course if Odinga acts against the Constitution while Attorney-General Githu Muigai has said the oath will attract a charge of treason, which attracts the death penalty.
