Speaking in Homa Bay during the People’s Assembly meeting, the former Prime Minister said that foreign ambassadors had tried talking him out of the swearing in, which he says is ‘unstoppable.’
The ODM party leader said that he is ready to save the country from dictatorship and electoral injustice.
”My friends abroad and ambassadors have been urging me not to take oath, cautioning me of sanctions and having my democratic gains tainted, but I’m not interested in travelling abroad as I am busy fighting electoral injustice in the country,” he said.
He also urged the IEBC to make public their results instead of dismissing NASA’s results, unveiled on Friday.
The opposition’s results show that Odinga beat President Uhuru Kenyatta by at least 200, 000 votes.
The results, they have insisted will be used to swear in Odinga.
Also in attendance was Kalonzo Musyoka who told the crowd that Kenya was in a crisis and the oath taking only the beginning of the struggle.
”We might not have the army like our counterparts in the government but the whole world will know that the people of Kenya have spoken and need their choice to be respected,” the Wiper party leader said.
