The acting Assistant Secretary of State in charge of African affairs, Donald Yamamoto, has asked the National Super Alliance not to hold the planned swearing in of its leader, Raila Odinga, as President on the 12th of this month. Yamamoto says the proposed swearing in is extra-constitutional and is asking the opposition to pursue the reforms they need within Kenya's laws.
However, Raila Odinga's adviser, Salim Lone, says the planned swearing in ceremony will be lawful, and will help prevent further polarization in the country, by giving Kenyans hope for electoral justice.
