The opposition NASA has formed an organising committee that will guide, facilitate and cordinate activities countrywide towards realisation of the peoples’ assembly motions in county assemblies. During a press briefing former Kakamega county senator DR. Bonny Khalwale reiterated that the opposition doesn’t recognise president Uhuru Kenyattas presidency.
In their relentless efforts, the opposition is vowing to push for reforms even after the electioneering period is over.
The peoples’ assembly motion sponsored by the opposition appears to be their final card as they push for its implementation.
A national organizing committee has now been formed to push the opposition’s agenda countrywide.

The motion seeks to achieve article one of the constitution which rests all sovereignty on the people.
Former Kakamega county senator Bonny Khalwale however says going by the October 26th presidential polls, the peoples sovereign power was aborted and as such prescribed the remedy.
Although on November 21st the high court in Kitui issued orders barring county assemblies from passing or implementing the motion, Khalwale terms the order as pushed by the state.
Ten counties have so far passed the motion. They include:
Busia Homa Bay
Government spokesperson Eric Kiraithe last week also weighed into the matter calling for the surcharging of members of county assemblies who debate the motion.
Khalwale however argues the Kenyan people under the guidance of their leaders will push for what is rightfully theirs.
Given both sides of the political divides continue holding onto hard stance, different quarters have been calling for dialogue to end the impasse.
