The government has issued a go-ahead for the parallel swearing in for Raila Odinga as the peoples' president. Through the government spokesman Eric Kiraithe, the Jubilee government has issued a stern warning for the parallel function if it will be done in a public place.


"Every meeting called in furtherance of an unlawful purpose is by law unlawful assembly. Any person attending such unlawful assembly should expect the full force of the law to be applied against them,” Kiraithe said.

Mr. Kiraithe added that all the elective posts in the constitution had been filled and office bearers are known to all Kenyans.

“Placing wave after wave of deceptive propaganda on the toiling shoulders of your supporters is not leadership and declaring yourself a people’s president does not even make you an MCA,” said Kiraithe.

“It just makes you and your followers criminals.”

“The question of a person congregating his friends to swear him in is not an issue and has no legal concern,” Mr. Kiraithe told journalists in Nairobi.

“And if they held it somewhere without interfering with the rights of other people, then the government would not even be concerned.”

“Today, Kenyans know their MCAs, MP, woman rep, senator, the governor and on November 20, the Supreme Court confirmed the election of President Uhuru Kenyatta as the president-elect of the republic,” he said.

President Kenyatta, the spokesman said, is ready to work with everyone, including Kenyans who did not vote for him.



The president told Raila Odinga to either work with him or go home. The statement welcomed Raila Odinga to the government either by understanding that Uhuru Kenyatta is the President and move or the stalemate proceeds.
