Raila hints at running a parallel govt

The National Super Alliance (Nasa) has, for the first time since President Kenyatta was re-elected, spoken on October 26 repeat presidential election.

The Raila Odinga-led coalition on Tuesday dismissed the poll as a “fraud” and vowed not to recognise Mr Kenyatta and his government.

Instead, Nasa said it would push for the formation of the People Assembly to run Kenya until a legitimate executive is elected and formed.

“Today we establish People’s Assembly to restore democracy in the country,” Mr Odinga said at Okoa Kenya headquarters in Nairobi.

“The People’s Assembly will have the youth, religious leaders, economic interest groups and the civil society.”

Nasa, he said, would present petitions for the establishment of the new outfit to govern Kenya to county assemblies for discussion and adoption. “The assembly’s timetable to be released soon,” he said.

In the meantime, Mr Odinga said, Nasa’s resistance wing (NRM) would embark on vigorous pro-democracy campaign through economic boycotts and picketing.
