Everyone will agree that the celebration by Jubilee supporters is half hearted. Not because they don’t find it worth the celebration but because of the uncertainty regarding NASA leader’s reaction.
In what is has circulated as the response by Mr. Odinga, the statement gives a hint of what everyone fears, Raila deciding to go the uncharted waters of having himself sworn in.
RAILA ODINGA’S STATEMENT ON THE COURT RULING
We in NASA had repeatedly declared before this Supreme Court ruling today that we consider this government to be illegitimate and do not recognize it.
This position has not been changed by the Court ruling, which did not come as a surprise.
It was a decision taken under duress.
We do not condemn the Court, we sympathize with it.
As such, the Court’s decision today could not possibly legitimize an illegitimate government whose president had publicly accused the Court of having carried out a “coup” by annulling his election and threatened to “fix” the justices once he was back in power.

NASA flagbearer Raila Odinga
Should the statement be true, and Raila goes ahead and declares himself the PEOPLE’S president, where does that leave Kenya?
Your guess is as good as mine
The diehard NASA supporters will go whichever length and extents to fight for their cause; violence will break out, which will be countered more violently by the UhuRuto crew and the country will become ungovernable and after some time, we will remember that there was a country Kenya.
Sad times looming …
