Odinga To Be 'Sworn In' As President
Whatever the Kenya government can do, the opposition claims it can replicate.
That best describes the determination of the Kenya's opposition to form a parallel government by "swearing in" opposition leader, Raila Odinga as alternative president on Tuesday.
Kenya's opposition says it will "swear in" Odinga despite the attorney general's warning that such a protest challenging the official president will amount to treason.
Norman Magaya, the CEO of the opposition National Super Alliance, said on Monday that the heavy deployment of the police to Uhuru Park in Nairobi will not stop the ceremony.
Odinga claims he won the presidential election despite the electoral commission's official declaration that President Uhuru Kenyatta was the victor.
The Supreme Court nullified Kenyatta's August win after Odinga challenged it claiming electoral fraud.
The court said the results from that election were "null and void" and ordered a fresh vote in October which Kenyatta won after Odinga boycotted, citing a lack of electoral reforms.
