Former Kakamega Senator Boni Khalwale has castigated the move by a section of politicians to conduct a mock swearing in for opposition leader Raila Odinga over the weekend.

In a tweet, the veteran politician, who is also a former Ikolomani lawmaker, said the swearing in of Mr Odinga is a serious, formal and dignified solemn national issue and should therefore be treated as such.

And in a separate interview with Nairobi News, Khalwale insisted that he fully supports the idea of swearing the Nasa leader on January 30, but that the ceremony should be conducted in a dignified and formal way.”

“That was a total joke. I expect Hon. Odinga to be sworn in by a Judge in a formal manner. Now, he seems to have been held hostage by some people which is not good. What happened in Kakamega was misguided and useless,” explained Khalwale.

The former senator also revealed that he missed out on the People’s Assembly gathering in Kakamega at the weekend to attend to a family matter.

Nasa has vowed to swear in Mr Odinga as the ‘People’s President’ at the end of this month, after postponing the same event on two previous occasions.

Odinga announced on December 13 last year that he would be sworn in as ‘President’, claiming he was the legitimate winner of the August 8, 2017 presidential election.
