NASA leader Raila Odinga is now calling for formation of an interim government to rule Kenya for six months as he holds dialogue with President Uhuru Kenyatta to save Kenya from anarchy.

Raila says it will be nearly impossible for Uhuru to govern a country in which almost half the people feel left out and short changed.

In an exclusive interview with Reuters news agency on Tuesday, Raila said it’s only an interim government that can give Kenyans space and time to openly dialogue about the stand off.

“We need to have an interim arrangement of governance involving representatives of both parties and six months will be required to carry out all these changes that we need in our country in order to have proper free and fair election,” said Raila.

Raila said even if Uhuru Kenyatta is sworn in, it will be a beginning of another political impasse even after the Supreme Court clears him.

The NASA leader’s message comes at a time when his co-principals revealed the motion for the people’s assembly has been sent to counties friendly to the opposition.

Raila said he is ready for talks with Uhuru Kenyatta to save Kenya from chaos but will not surrender until as the opposition, achieve what they want.

The Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) declared Uhuru Kenyatta winner of the October 26 repeat poll, although Raila Odinga withdrew from the race and termed it shambolic.
