Odinga proposes “People’s Assembly” for Kenya


Kenya opposition leader Raila Odinga plans to use pickets and petitions to protest last week’s presidential poll and convene a “People’s Assembly” to improve governance but made no mention of challenging the result.

“We will guard our right to dissent by exercising it,” Odinga said in a television address. He emphasised he wanted to limit his protests to well-recognised, legal avenues.
