Raila Odinga: I'm ready for dialogue with Kenyatta

In a meeting held on Tuesday, December 5, at US Ambassador Robert Godec's residence, Principal Deputy Assistant Secretary at the US government's Bureau of African Affairs, Donald Yamamoto, pointed out that NASA's planned inauguration will polarize the country even further.

According to Raila's advisor Salim Lone, the swearing plans are already underway.

Odinga's controversial move followed the official swearing-in of incumbent President Uhuru Kenyatta on November 28 for his second term in office.

Yamamoto's warning followed a meeting with Odinga and Nasa principals Musalia Mudavadi, Moses Wetang'ula and Makueni Governor Kivutha Kibwana, representing Wiper leader Kalonzo Musyoka, who is away.

"I am not a coward, I will be sworn as President on Jamhuri Day, I am the legitimate President", said Raila. He will address the nation as has become the tradition and is expected to expound on his government's plans for the country for the next five years. Accompanying him on the trip was US National Security Council Director for Africa Jonathan Howard. That is a surprising shift considering he had called for a six-month transition government to prepare for fresh elections.

Kenya's main opposition group says police have detained one of its advisers ahead of a planned protest ceremony to stage a mock inauguration of Raila Odinga as president.
