We also want Raila sworn in- Jubilee chairman, Murathe now says
Jubilee Party has downplayed the planned swearing-in of Raila Odinga and his deputy Kalonzo Musyoka on Tuesday as people's president and deputy president respectively.
Party Vice Chairman David Murathe said they want NASA to go ahead with their plans so that the country moves forward after the January 30 event.
"We want them to finish the so-called swearing-in so that we put behind us these endless and meaningless threats," he said.
Speaking to Sunday Nation, Murathe dismissed the reports that the government has panicked over the event saying President Uhuru Kenyatta and his deputy William Ruto are not concerned by the planned oath.
"We are not bothered at all by their actions and if you have noticed, at no point has the President and Deputy President pronounced themselves on this circus," he noted.
However, the former Gatanga MP and Uhuru's close ally said Jubilee has only cautioned against the plan because it is illegal and could spark off a dangerous political confrontation which could ruin the country.
"The only challenge, though, is the climate of uncertainty and anxiety, which Nasa is creating. No self-respecting government can watch helplessly as our economy is destabilised by a people keen on fomenting a revolution," Murathe told the local daily.
