You'll commit treason, Githu Muigai tells Raila Odinga
3 months ago, 7 Dec 13:15
Kenya's Attorney-General Githu Muigai has warned against plans to swear-in opposition National Super Alliance (Nasa) leader Raila Odinga as the ‘people’s president’ on December 12. Prof Muigai, the chief legal adviser to the government, on Thursday said swearing-in Mr Odinga would be an illegality attracting charges of treason. He said such an inauguration would be outside the Constitution because Kenya already has a sitting president who was inaugurated on November 28. At the same time, the AG warned the 11 counties that have passed people’s assembly motion, saying they committed illegalities. Such devolved Houses, he said, may be surcharged for misusing taxpayers’ money. More follows. Opposition leaders set to roll out programme of events leading up to Mr Odinga installation.
