Latest Twitter bust-up between Miguna Miguna and David Ndii reveals fresh details on Raila Odinga’s controversial swearing-in ceremony

CAPTION: Raila Odinga is sworn in at Uhuru Park on the 30th of January, 2018.

A recent heavy Twitter exchange between NRM Kenya General Dr. Miguna Miguna and renowned economist Dr. David Ndii has revealed fresh details on the events leading up to the controversial swearing-in of ODM Party Leader Raila Odinga as the “People’s President” on the 30th of January, 2018.

It all started after Miguna Miguna accused Ndii of supporting Raila Odinga who “has gone to bed” with those they were fighting against. Adding that Ndii would not join a Miguna-led revolutionary quest due to his political inclination.

A social media user then requested that Dr. Ndii and Dr. Miguna form a think-tank to liberate Kenya and its people from “cannibalism” instead of engaging in constant, meaningless spats online.

Quick in his response, Miguna said that they had previously formed something similar but Dr. Ndii fled from it when NRM Kenya was formed, adding that the economist violently opposed Raila Odinga’s swearing in, arguing that NASA should not seek power.

This seemed to heavily trigger David Ndii who hit back and informed Miguna that their disagreement was on his idea of swearing in Raila Odinga in Dar es Salaam and Congo. Reminding the former Nairobi Gubernatorial aspirant that his attempt to record a “Besigye style” swearing in inside businessman Jimi Wanjigi’s house failed.

Ndii added that Miguna was not part of the group that planned Raila Odinga’s 30th January swearing-in event.

At this point of the exchange, another social media user questioned why Miguna constantly refers to Raila Odinga as a “fraud” yet he ardently wanted him the Kenyan President and even administered oath during his swearing-in ceremony.

Ndii replied and made it clear that Miguna was only after power. He went on to say that this was the main reason behind their disagreement on the swearing-in strategy; adding that Miguna was pushing Raila Odinga to take official oath outside the country and demand official recognition from exile.

Ndii says that he told Miguna two things. One, that NASA was a “broad based political coalition” and not a revolutionary movement. Two, that his idea was a “Besigye strike” — a blow and dry strategy that he totally disagreed with in principle.

According to Ndii, the swearing-in for them (NASA) was part of a broader mass action strategy which they would only perform after building consensus in the coalition and that at that point, Miguna “bellowed” the words, “You people don’t want power! ” at him. His reply was “True, we want change”.

Ndii says that their last argument with Miguna over the swearing-in was interrupted by a phone call from Raila Odinga who was then in Germany. After Miguna explained his strategy to Baba, he sounded “apprehensive” and insisted the idea needed to be thought through.

He adds that from that point, Miguna went off to do his “revolution thing” and he, together with the rest, went to build grassroot consensus with the People’s Assemblies only for Miguna to show up in Kilifi where he was stopped by police in Mtwapa.

In his final tweet, Ndii says that there was an impromptu swearing-in planned by Miguna and that it thankfully didn’t happen. Finishing off by saying their next encounter with Miguna was at Uhuru Park on the 30th of January 2018, an event he continues to claim “full and exclusive credit”.
