Fifty-four NASA MPs have up to Monday to sign the swearing-in affidavit or find themselves in a list of shame to be published next week.

So far over 50 MPs are reported to have signed the affidavit among them Ugunja MP Opiyo Wandayi and Homa Bay Women Representative Gladys Wanga.

Kakamega Senator Cleopa Malala, who is overseeing the drive, said the alliance will make public list of MPs who refuse to support the course.

Speaking to Citizen Digital on Saturday, Kanini Kega said any legislator who signs the affidavit to endorse the swearing-in of the NASA leaders is setting the country up for destruction and should not be allowed to leave the country.

Raila Odinga, the leader of National Super Alliance (NASA), stated on Friday, 19 January that he would take what he terms an on "oath of office" at a ceremony scheduled for Tuesday, 30 January at Uhuru Park in Nairobi. "We are waiting for this weekend to see how many more will append their signatures".

According to Odinga, he will be sworn in as the "Peoples President" together with his 2017 election running mate, Kalonzo Musyoka.

In the recent past, talks have been rife over simmering disunity among the principals regarding the oath, with claims some principals were opposed to the swearing-in.

NASA puts the nullified August 8 figures at 8,634,731 votes for Raila against President Uhuru Kenyatta's 7,675,162.

As he announced his support for Kalonzo, Raila allayed fears that there were splits in the opposition insisting that they would remain united.

The affidavit also dismisses the October 26 repeat presidential polls, which the opposition boycotted because they were conducted by same poll body which failed to comply with Supreme Court order on opening servers.
