Raila had dismissed plans to have a parallel swearing-in ceremony saying it would only lead to anarchy and probably lead to more deaths.

He cited Ivory Coast and Gambia which had been faced by a similar election crisis culminating in the parallel swearing-in of Alassane Quatara and Adama Barrow respectively, saying their situation was not the same as Kenya.
