Bunge La Mwananchi lobby moves to court to stop NASA swearing in ceremony

Bunge La Mwananchi a Kenya-based lobby group, is in court to stop Tuesday’s swearing-in ceremony of Raila Odinga and Kalonzo Musyoka as People’s Assembly President and deputy respectively.

The lobby group’s representatives, Henry Shitanda and David Oyola want the event stopped on grounds that it is illegal and government should not allow such a thing to take place.

In their suit papers, the petitioners claim the intended swearing-in of Odinga and Musyoka amounts to a gross violation and mockery of Article 1 of the Constitution on the sovereignty of the people.

They have asked the court to issue orders restraining NASA, ODM, Wiper Democratic Party, Amani National Congress and the National Resistance Movement from conducting the ceremony in Kenya or any other country.
