Kenya opposition leader proposes ‘People’s Assembly’

nairobi (Reuters) – Kenya opposition leader Raila Odinga said on Tuesday he would use pickets and petitions to protest last week’s presidential poll and convene a “People’s Assembly” to try to improve governance but made no mention of challenging the result.

“We will guard our right to dissent by exercising it,” Odinga said in a long-awaited television address. He emphasised that he wanted to limit his protests to well-recognised, legal avenues.
