Puzzle of missing Nasa principals at Raila ‘swearing in’
Kenyans were left puzzled after three Nasa co-principals failed to show up for the ‘swearing in’ ceremony of Raila Odinga as president.
Mr Odinga took the ‘oath’ at around 2:40pm in an event that lasted less than five minutes. He was sworn in as “president of the people’s Republic of Kenya”.
He then gave a short address that sought to explain the whereabouts of his deputy Kalonzo Musyoka and a Nasa co-principal as well as other co-principals Musalia Mudavadi and Moses Wetangula.
Mr Odinga explained that although the three were not in attendance they were “together with us”.
He told his supporters that they would know the reasons why the three kept off at a later date.
On Twitter, people speculated why the three did not attend the fete.
