Raila resisted calls to be sworn as President

14 January 2013, 14:39

Nairobi - Prime Minister Raila Odinga has recalled how he was forced to cool down pressure from his ODM party functionaries who wanted to have him sworn in as President during the 2007/2008 elections dispute.

According to Daily Nation, he disclosed that a section of leaders from his party told him that they had identified a judge who was ready to swear him in ahead of President Kibaki in the middle of the dispute.

They were also keen to have him sworn in even after Kibaki, a development they said would have mirrored what happened in Madagascar when two contending presidential candidates were declared as President.
