AG Githu Muigai, That Is Treason

Attorney General Githu Muigai has warned against the swearing-in of Raila Odinga  on 12th of December 2017.

The AG said that Raila Odinga will be charged with treason if he is sworn-in on that day.

He said such an inauguration would be outside the Constitution because Kenya already has a sitting president who was inaugurated on November 28.

“I reiterate the any attempts to swear in any person as president other than the one elected in line with the constitution and in a manner provided for in the law is unlawful, illegal null and void ab initio,” Prof Muigai told journalists at the State Law office in the capital Nairobi.

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.

He said the national government retains the right to review the funds allocated to the concerned counties.

The AG’s warning came hours after Mr Odinga told off the US and other western powers that have advised against the oath plan.

“We thought we had friends but we were wrong and now we know they are enemies. Up to today, no single ambassador has condemned the killing of people by police,” he said.

“The western countries should, therefore, keep off the affairs of the country as Kenyan problems will only be solved by Kenyans themselves.”
