[VIDEO] Government warns of ‘firm action’ should NASA sabotage Uhuru’s inauguration

Government has spoken tough on any attempts that could be made by opposition to block the swearing in of President-elect Uhuru Kenyatta.

This follows statements by Raila Odinga’s point man and Siaya Senator James Orengo on Sunday that they will swear in Raila as the fifth President of Kenya in two weeks time.

Orengo who addressed a charged crowd at Kamukunji grounds said IEBC should open servers to show Kenyans that Raila was the winner and not Uhuru.

“We demand that they open the servers for the August 8 polls so that we can declare Raila as the fifth President of the Republic of Kenya,” he said.

However, Government spokesman Erick Kiraithe on Wednesday in Mombasa said firm action will be taken against anyone who dares act contrary to the law.

“The law is the law and Kenya has adequate capacity to enforce the law. What is legally binding shall be done whether one or two people like it or not,” said Kiraithe as the Star reports.

He told NASA to vent its discontentment with Uhuru’s presidency through legally established mechanisms.

“If you are not happy with the constitution as it is, there are avenues in Parliament…a referendum.  These other noises will only destabilise this country.”

NASA has dismissed October 26 repeat elections as a sham.

The opposition has now called for fresh polls within 90 days.

On Tuesday, they released February 9 next year as the official date for fresh elections.

It is banking on the People’s Assembly wing of the opposition to push for electoral reforms as well as new polls.

Kiraithe in a jibe said NASA’s liberation should be about ending poverty and not championing boycott of products.

“The liberation politics should be on ending stinging poverty, Kiraithe said adding NASA’s Canaan journey is an illusion.
