Final word

Amos Wako the Attorney General has been given last word and said unless they all swear oath as it is they cannot be sworn into Parliament and therefore cannot change the oath!

Sounds slightly like blackmail to me.

The speaker now says they allowed member for Othaya which is Kibaki to vote first and Raila to note second and then alphabetical order so the members should be sworn in the same order.

He goes on to say that Kenya is a sovereign republic and sovereignty is to the people of Kenya. Therefore he asks that they go with swearing in with the oath as it is but it does not include the name of the President so although they swear allegiance to the President they do not specify who the President is!

Lots of mumbling now so let's see what happens next!
