A Jubilee Party governor has told the Judiciary to begin preparations for President Uhuru Kenyatta's swearing-in ceremony on November 28th.
Speaking in Chuka town on Saturday, Tharaka Nithi Governor Muthomi Njuki dismissed National Super Alliance (NASA) leader Raila Odinga's demands for a six-month transition government as impractical.
Njuki said the decision by the opposition leader to pull out of October 26th presidential race confirmed he was not interested in being president.
"There is someone who went all the way to America and started calling for a 'nusu mkate' for six months so he can have a taste of the presidency,” he said.
He added: "We should ignore the opposition's leaders since their aim is to paralyze the country and later blame the Jubilee government."
President Uhuru cannot be sworn-in before the Supreme Court hears and determines two presidential petitions tabled before it challenging October 26th repeat poll.
One of the petitions have been lodged by former Kilome MP Harun Mwau while the other has been filed by two human rights leaders Njonjo Mue - chairman of International Commission of Jurists (ICJ) Kenya Chapter and Khelef Khalifa - chairman of the Muslims for Human Rights (Muhuri).
The petition hearings are scheduled to kick-off next week, with the court ruling expected before November 21st.
