On Monday, December 4, NASA reiterated its plan to swear in Raila following arrest of its top strategist David Ndii, who was released on a Ksh 10,000 bond. Before this election, he sought it to ensure that it would be credibly done, but there was no interest in the dialogue nor in holding an honest election.

"Raila's swearing-in will help prevent further polarisation by giving Kenyans hope for electoral justice that was denied to them, under a genuinely independent IEBC", he said.

It will also give an impetus for the people's assemblies to push for economic and justice issues in the country, the adviser said in a written statement.

Odinga's advisor Salim Lone, in a statement, said Odinga has always been open to dialogue and even called for this before elections. "He has repeatedly indicated his willingness to enter into a dialogue even now", it reads.
