National Super Alliance (Nasa) leader Raila Odinga now says, like President Uhuru Kenyatta, he will also be sworn in as “the people’s president”.

He made the declaration on Tuesday moments before police used teargas to stop him and his supporters from marching to Jacaranda grounds in Embakasi, Nairobi, for a prayer rally.

“I am not a coward, I will be sworn as president on Jamhuri Day, I am the legitimate president,” he told his supporters.

The swearing-in, he said, will be based on the results of August 8 presidential election, which he claims he won but was rigged out through manipulation of figures.

“Server indicated that we had 8.8 million votes while Kenyatta had 7.1 million votes,” he said.
