Police now keep off Uhuru Park ahead of Raila oath

Police now keep off Uhuru Park ahead of Raila oath”

Some supporters carried Bibles, saying they were ready to swear in Mr Odinga.

Nasa supporters on Tuesday began trooping into Uhuru Park as early as 5am ahead of leader Raila Odinga's planned swearing-in.

The coalition CEO, Norman Magaya on Monday, said attendees should be seated by 8.30am noting the ceremony will be over by 1pm.

However, by Tuesday morning, the park was still accessible as vehicles and residents passed through it without interference.

Nairobi Police chief Japheth Koome had on Sunday warned that no gathering would be allowed to take place at the park.

At 8am, police began entering the park.

It is however not clear if more of the plain clothes officers were around.Earlier, there was confusion at Uhuru Park after a beehive was found dumped behind the dais.

A few NASA supporters who had arrived at the Park from Kisumu, Homa Bay, Migori and Siaya counties still waited even as they expressed fears that the venue may have been changed without their knowledge.
