President-elect Uhuru Invites Raila To His Inauguration

President Uhuru Kenyatta has invited NASA leader Raila Odinga to his inauguration on Tuesday at the Moi International Sports Centre, Kasarani, in Nairobi.

Other presidential candidates and their running-mates have also been invited to attend the ceremony.
The 22-member Assumption of Office of the President committee led by Chief of Staff Joseph Kinyua, Inspector General of Police Joseph Boinnet, Solicitor General Njee Muturi and National Assembly clerk Michael Sialai, after a closed door meeting assured Kenyans of adequate security.
The leaders who converged at Kasarani on Friday to finalise the swearing-in plans, downplayed fears of possible chaos, saying only the inaugural is recognised by law.
“This is going to be a very important day for Kenya and Kenyatta as he assumes office for his second and final term. It is historic. We have invited all the Kenyan people and the presidential candidates, NASA and others,” said Mr Kinyua.
Raila, his running mate Kalonzo Musyoka and other NASA co-principals are in the guest list, despite planning parallel rallies.
Kinyua dismissed travel advisory issued by Britain saying “it is sad and ill-advised.”
