It should be noted that Odinga and NASA dashed to Supreme Court to have this specific election nullified, and indeed court presided over by Justice David K Maraga ordered for fresh elections only for Raila to dissuade his supporters against participating in the repeat.

Uhuru won the repeated elections overwhelmingly and later a court petition against his victory. He was then sworn in on November 28 as validly elected President.

However, Raila while persuading his supporters to attend his ‘inauguration’ Tuesday, said he will announce the law which he will be using to oath himself into office.

He according to Citizen TV remained coy on which judicial officer would administer his oath.
