The National Assembly was treated to some drama during the swearing in of Embakasi MP Babu Owino on Thursday after he added his own verbiage into the oath being administered.
Owino was forced to retake the oath after he added the name of the National Super Alliance (NASA) leader Raila Odinga and the party’s slogan of Tibim which is largely associated with him and used by the party in the run up to this year’s general elections.
“I, Babu Owino, having been elected MP, do swear in the name of almighty God that I would bear true faith and allegiance to the people of the Republic of Kenya and Raila Odinga…that I will obey, respect uphold … so help me God,” he said.
“I will obey, respect and uphold so help me God. Thank you. Tibim,” he said.
