National Super Alliance (Nasa) lader Raila Odinga now says, like President Uhuru Kenyatta, he will also be sworn in as “the people’s president”.
He made the declaration on Tuesday moments before police used teargas to stop him and his supporters from marching to Jacaranda grounds in Embakasi, Nairobi, for a prayer rally.
Mr Odinga said he will take oath of office on December 12 using Chapter 1 of the Constitution, which states that sovereign power belongs to the people.
The swearing-in, he said, will be based on the results of August 8 presidential election, which he claims he won but was rigged out through manipulation of figures.
“Server indicated that we had 8.8 million votes while Kenyatta had 7.1million votes,” he told his supporters who defied police operation to listen to him.
He reiterated his vow not to recognise President Kenyatta and his government despite being sworn in on Tuesday.
“We went to the courts and they said Kenyatta was not duly elected… They ordered IEBC to open servers but they refused because they knew all the secrets were there.”
