NASA leader Raila Odinga is the legitimate President and Kalonzo Musyoka his deputy, Opposition leaders have said.
While discussing their strategies in Machakos on Saturday, they announced further protest, telling their lawmakers to boycott the vetting of cabinet members who will serve in Jubilee’s second term.
“We recognise Raila as the legitimate president of Kenya and as sovereign people we will see to it that they assume office,”chief campaigner Musalia Mudavadi said.
Mudavadi, who is ANC leader, said NASA will do what it takes to uphold democracy with respect to the constitution.
“We know that on August 8, Kenyans voted for Raila who emerged winner. Raila and Kalonzo won that election. What we have done will always be in the framework of the constitution.”
The presidential election was repeated on October 26 after the Supreme Court nullified President Uhuru Kenyatta’s victory in August.
Raila and Kalonzo withdrew from the election, giving Uhuru an easy win. IEBC chairman Wafula Chebukati reported a 38.84 per cent turnout and said Uhuru got 98 per cent of the votes.
