Raila Odinga awaits ”swearing-in” as alternative president.

Published

on

Kenya’s opposition supporters began the day with song and dance at the venue where their leader, Raila Odinga, has said he will be “sworn in” as alternative president later on Tuesday.

The country has been tense since Kenya’s incumbent President Uhuru Kenyatta won 98 percent of the vote in a repeated election in which an opposition boycott helped lower turnout to 39 percent in October. Odinga pulled out of the vote, saying the electoral commission had failed to institute reforms to forestall the kind of “illegalities and irregularities” that scampered Kenyatta’s victory in the August election.

An opposition supporter, Larry Oyugi said they are abiding by the law.

Because we had warned the police enough and we are also going as per the constitution. As you are aware the constitution of Kenya article one allows all Kenyans to exercise their power directly, this is why we are here to exercise our powers by gathering here and also article 37 allows peaceful assembly. We are citizens of this country, we are allowed to peacefully assemble here and elect our president as per the constitution”,Larry said.

There was no police presence to face the early group of Odinga supporters gathering ahead of their leaders’ arrival at Nairobi’s Uhuru park ,only mild resistance coming from some bees evicted when a hive was discovered behind the main dias where leaders are due to sit.

Earlier plans for an “inauguration” of Odinga as alternative president were postponed in December.

Meanwhile, major television and radio channels in Kenya have been switched off while threats of closure have been issued by the East African nation’s regulatory authority if they broadcast the swearing in ceremony of Raila Odinga.

A bishop accused of defiling three girls he was living with at an orphanage, infecting one of them with HIV has now sentenced to 75 years in prison.



Kisumu Resident Magistrate Pauline Mbulika found him guilty of three counts of defilement and deliberate transmission of HIV.

Joseph Agutu had promised to sponsor the minors before he started defiling them.

Agutu who hid his face from the cameras as police escorted him out of the solitary cell to Kodiaga Maximum Prison, had maintained his innocence throughout the proceedings.

He was charged with committing the crime against the girls between April and July 2016. One of the girls is aged 14 while two are 15 years old.

The court heard that the accused intentionally committed the crime and deliberately infected one of the minors with HIV.

The accused also reportedly touched the girls inappropriately on various dates between April and July 12, 2016. In addition, Agutu also faced an alternative charge of touching the private parts of the minors.

Four prosecution witnesses pointed an accusing finger to the Bishop with the minors recounting the sexual encounters that the man subjected them to.

One of the minors who is an orphan painfully narrated to the court how the bishop lured her and her grandmother to the trap.

“My grandmother brought me to him and he promised to sponsor my education. My grandmother went back home and left me with him at the church,” said the minor.

After a while, she told the court, the bishop defiled her and called the other girl and defiled them too as she slept on the floor. She said they were crying throughout the ordeal.

The court heard that the following morning the bishop refused to allow them to go to school but instead ordered them to go to church.
