NASA chiefs allow MPs, Senators to attend swearing-in
NASA leaders have unanimously agreed their MPs and Senators will attend the Thursday inauguration ceremony at Parliament.
The Opposition had issued a statement saying members would boycott the swearing-in until matters surrounding Uhuru Kenyatta’s “supposed re-election” are heard and credibly determined.
At Okoa Kenya offices in Nairobi on Wednesday, Ford Kenya leader Moses Wetang’ula noted the Opposition leaders will only take oaths of office.
“NASA MPs will go to to Parliament tomorrow for swearing-in and induction,” he told a press briefing that other principals attended.
ODM secretary for political affairs Opiyo Wandayi had termed the first 12th Parliament’s first sitting illegal and said the gazette notice had to be revoked.
Majority leader Aden Duale said NASA should stop “badmouthing the first sitting of Parliament” and added its leaders are dishonest and have ill motives.
