Monday November 26, 2018 - President John Pombe Magufuli allegedly declined to have Opposition Leader, Raila Odinga, sworn in as the ‘People’s President’ at the Kenyan Embassy in Tanzania.
This was revealed by controversial lawyer, Miguna Miguna, who was deported from Kenya for engaging in treason by swearing in Raila as the People’s President at Uhuru Park, in his newly released book titled ‘Treason: The Case Against Tyrants & Renegades.’
In the book, Miguna narrates how the National Revolutionary Movement of Kenya (NRM-Ke) committee had proposed that, if it was impossible to swear in Mr. Odinga at a public venue in Nairobi, then it could be done at a Kenyan Embassy in Ghana or Tanzania.
However, when Raila Odinga asked Siaya Senator, James Orengo, to speak to President Magufuli about the possibility of holding the ceremony in Tanzania, Magufuli vehemently declined and even opposed their swearing in plans.
“According to Orengo, Magufuli believed that leadership was ‘a gift from God’ and that if God had not given Raila that gift, there was no reason to pursue our plans and that Raila should forget about being sworn in as The People’s President,” reads an excerpt from the book.
“In other words, Magufuli was of the view that God did not want Raila to be the President of Kenya.”
“I found such statements to be outrageous.”
“God had not manipulated the August 8th, 2017 General Elections,” said Miguna.
