US President Donald Trump’s administration is piling pressure on NASA leader Raila Odinga to abandon his planned swearing-in on December 12, saying it is unconstitutional.

US Acting Assistant Secretary of State for African Affairs Donald Yamamoto, who met Raila and his team on Tuesday, told Opposition leaders that the US would push for dialogue with President Uhuru Kenyatta to find an amicable solution.  “The United States also urges Opposition leaders to work within Kenya’s laws to pursue the reforms they seek and to avoid extra-constitutional actions such as the proposed 'inauguration ceremony' on December 12," said a statement from the US embassy in Nairobi.
