The National Super Alliance (NASA) People’s Assembly organising committee has announced that Opposition chief Raila Odinga and other leaders will take the oath of office early next year.
In a communiqué seen by KDRTV, the coalition announced that the inaugural session of the People’s Assembly would be held on the same day.
The committee withheld the specific dates of what has been termed as the constitutive assembly, however, they reiterated that the process of the People’s Assembly was back in full swing.
“Following the postponement of the launch of the People’s Assembly that was to take place on Jamhuri Day, the Organizing Committee wishes to announce the resumption of the People’s Assembly process,” the statement read in part.
The Opposition coalition elaborated that a series of consultative forums in various regions of the country will take place in the run-up to the major event.
“The postponed inaugural session of the National People’s Assembly will be preceded by a series of regional consultative forums.
“These preparatory meetings will bring together the leadership of the different regions in the country to deliberate on national governance as it affects the regions, and to distill the region’s agenda for the People’s Assembly,” the statement outlined.
The first of such congregations took place in Machakos County, after which the coalition leaders launched the “Maanzoni Declaration” which ratified Mr Odinga and Wiper party leader Kalonzo Musyoka as the recognised President and Deputy President.
NASA will hold the second assembly in the Coast region on December 17, 2017, where the principals are expected to attend.
The David Ndii-led committee stated that details of the Sunday meeting will be communicated by NASA leaders from the coastal region.
