Raila swearing-in act of high treason, warns AG Muigai

Raila swearing-in act of high treason, warns AG Muigai

Odinga's National Super Alliance has said it will proceed with the event.

Attorney General Githu Muigai has described the planned swearing-in of NASA leader Raila Odinga as high treason and warned that it attracts the death penalty.

He said such an inauguration would be outside the Constitution because Kenya already has a sitting president who took the oath of office on November 28.

He has since announced the formation of a national resistance movement that is exerting pressure on the government to promote rule of law, electoral reforms and human rights.

Odinga successfully challenged President Uhuru Kenyatta's August re-election in court but then boycotted a rerun vote in October, demanding electoral reforms. "The criminal law of the Republic of Kenya, in Article 40 of the penal code provides or stipulates that that sort of process, is high treason", he noted.

Odinga is set to be installed as president on December 12th after being endorsed by Nasa's people's assembly.

"The People's Assembly is an institution totally unknown to the constitution of Kenya and totally unknown to the County Governments Act".

So, it really helped to further legitimize the sector. "With other products we've gone back, we've redesigned, we've relaunched". The planned measures would compel Bitcoin traders to reveal their identities and report illegal activities to law enforcement.

Such devolved Houses, he said, may be surcharged for misusing taxpayers' money.

The AG's warning came hours after Odinga told the United States and other western powers that have advised against the planned swearing-in plan to back off.

The first election in August also showed Kenyatta as the victor.

Donald Yamamoto, the Principal Deputy Assistant Secretary at the U.S. government's Bureau of African Affairs, warned that Odinga's move would further polarise Kenya.

"We now know that those people that have been posing as our friends are indeed our enemies because up to today, 215 people have been killed since August 8 General Election by police yet not even one ambassador has come out to condemn the wanton killings", he said.

He added: "The western countries should, therefore, keep off the affairs of the country as Kenyan problems will only be solved by Kenyans themselves".

The opposition leader spoke outside a morgue in the capital, Nairobi, while accompanying families collecting bodies of alleged victims.
