Wiper Deputy Party leader Farah Maalim will not indulge in NASA’s planned Raila Odinga’s swearing in, he has said.

Speaking on NTV’s Am Live, the former Garissa town MP aspirant said that he will uphold the law as swearing in Odinga would only plunge the country into chaos.

”… I would like to uphold the law. I have not been part of any process that is arranging for the swearing in of Raila Odinga. I will hesitate to endorse any swearing in because that is a recipe for chaos,” Maalim said.

The former National Assembly deputy speaker noted that Odinga should instead push for electoral reform agenda, which was their initial plan.

”We need to sit back and come up with other methods to force our reform agenda. Swearing in of another President is not the solution,” he said, adding that sometimes the law is unfair but ‘the law is the law.’

”I have a strong commitment that changes should be made but in the right way to bring to an end electoral impunity in Kenya.”

The former Prime Minister vowed to be sworn in on December 12 by the people’s assembly that was temporarily put on hold by Justice Lilian Mutende.
