The opposition leader Raila Odinga flew to Zanzibar on Sunday,November 19,just hours before the Supreme Court upheld Uhuru’s win.It is not yet clear when Raila Odinga will be back in the country ,but NASA assured its supporters that it will issue a directive in five days.
Raila’s mysterious trip to Zanzibar was first made public by Raila Odinga’s longtime adviser,Salim Lone who also works for the Orange Democratic Movement(ODM) in the same capacity.
This comes after claims of assassination attempt after he jetted into the country. The reason why he travelled secretly to tanzania has now been revealed. Raila wants to take cover from long time friend and president of Tanzania magufuli. There are plans with NASA to swear in Raila as president of people’s assembly which has now been approved in 10 counties.
Jubilee has maintained that people’s assembly is not anchored anywhere in law therefore it is illegal. Uhuru is set for swearing in on 28th this month.
