Swearing in unofficial president is 'treason', Kenya attorney general says

Share

Muigai did not name anyone but opposition leader Raila Odinga said last month, he would be inaugurated by a people's assembly on December 12 - Kenya's Independence Day. The extended campaigns eventually led to President Uhuru Kenyatta's re-election. Treason charges attract the death sentence in Kenya. "Parliament has not delegated any such power and the outcome for that is that those institutions are unconstitutional, illegal and are null and void", said the Attorney General. "The persons involved in their creation are involved in extra-constitutional activity and may be visited by the full force of the law", he said.

The Nasa coalition is planning to swear in Raila Odinga using the results of the August 8 presidential election on Tuesday to coincide with Republic (Jamhuri) Day celebrations although they have not disclosed the venue.
