Truth about Maraga's warning letter to Judges planning to take part in Raila's swearing-in

Raila maintains he will be sworn-in if there will be no talks with Uhuru.

A source at the Judiciary registrar, who sought anonymity, told to the effect that all magistrates and judges should back off from the treasonous oath.

“I would have received such a statement from the CJ. So I don’t think there has been such a communication from the Chief Justice. There is nothing of such kind,” a source told on phone.

Speculations on Friday were rife that the CJ had written to all Judiciary magistrates and judges warning them against participating in swearing-in of the NASA leaders.

“Uhuru Kenyatta is the validly elected President of the Republic of Kenya and the Commander in Chief of eth armed forces. As such, any other event advertised as having been planned for the same will be illegal and an attempt to unseat a legitimate government which would amount to treason.

“Therefore all judges and Magistrates are hereby cautioned not to engage in any such events and or activities,” reads the statement purportedly signed by the CJ.

In the recent past, Attorney General Prof Githu Muigai issued a warning to the National Super Alliance against conducting a swearing-in ceremony for Nasa leaders Raila Odinga terming it “high treason”.

The Attorney General, who serves as the legal advisor to the government, stated that Odinga would be punished by death sentence if he went ahead to conduct the controversial swearing-in ceremony.

Chief Justice David Maraga, who is Mombasa for the National Parliament Legal Committee induction, has not commented on the matter by the time of publishing this story. Raila, on his part, maintains that the oath plan would take place on Tuesday next week.
