Ex-Kakamega Senator Bonny Khalwale has conspicuously dropped his push for inauguration of Raila Odinga, instead called for dialogue from both sides.
A charged NASA coalition insists that the swearing-in shall go on as planned despite internal dissent from a section if members.
To get rid of electoral injustices, we must swear in Raila first. This is the only way the will of people shall be respected.
Said Kakamega Senator Cleophas Malala.
Just the other day, @KBonimtetezi ran to my house at 7am panting that the @PoliceKE had been chasing him the whole night. He was with us when @UKenyatta's Mungiki donning @PoliceKE uniform killed 18 innocent civilians. He has been yelling "swearing-in!" Has UGALI turned him dumb?

Also opposed to the swearing-in are Dan Amenyo and Wiper Deputy leader Farah Maalim who wants a moderate approach.
And Khalwale, who has been pushing for Raila’s inauguration, has however joined modrate forces within the coalition. Miguna Miguna accuse Khalwale of eating Ugali at State House.
My position is that dialogue is better than swearing-in. Remember Jubilee has not ruled out dialogue.
He told local media.
With calls to cancel the January 30th event, NASA secretariat has vowed to move on with the plans regardless of the outcome.

I am head of operations in NRM, and I will tell you as a fact, that there will be a swearing-in, whether Manyora calls it whatever he wants to call it, whether Jakoyo talks about dialogue, whether our friends are laughing. We will swear Raila in on January 30th, even Raila has no option.
I am telling you on National TV that Raila Amollo Odinga has no option, he will be sworn in whether he likes it or not. We are going to swear Raila in. Raila is going to be the people’s president not by his choice, but because I have server results of August 8.
