Former Prime Minister Raila Odinga’s wife, Mama Ida Odinga, was irritated with a decision by NASA leaders to try and swear in her husband illegally.
According to NASA insiders, Siaya Senator, James Orengo, and former Machakos Senator, Johnstone Muthama, were among those pushing for Raila Odinga to be sworn in as President on December 12th.
Ida, according to insiders, expressed fears of convulsive violence leading to deaths of innocent supporters during the illegal swearing in.
She also feared that Raila Odinga himself would be arrested and jailed for life and this would stress her family.
“She was very clear that the swearing-in was crazy and wondered where it came from,” the insider said.
“She even asked Orengo and Muthama, since they were insisting on RailaOdinga‘s swearing in, to swear themselves and leave her husband alone,” the insider added.
