This is despite cracks being evident in the opposition coalition with some of the affiliate parties and members distance themselves from the planned event.
Raila’s deputy Kalonzo Musyoka’s Wiper party has denied being part of the plans.
It joins Musalia Mudavadi’s ANC party which had earlier said it had not been consulted over the planned ceremony.
Raila surprised Kenyans on Tuesday, November 28 when he announced that he would be sworn-in as president.
There have been jitters in the opposition as affiliate parties pull to different sides over the matter sparking fears of a major split.
But Raila’s ally Junet Mohammed and adviser Salim Lone allayed fears that the event may not happen saying that plans were at an advanced stage.
A detailed update would be shared in two days, Junet told the Daily Nation.
Junet dismissed copies of letters shared on the internet purportedly from the oraganising commitee saying they were the work of Jubilee to make the opposition look desperate and paint it in bad image.
