Jubilee MP takes action on Raila over swearing-in

The D-Day for Raila is in the offing.

Mr. Kuria justified that he(Raila Odinga) ought to have been charged with treason for taking an illegal presidential oath.

“I will move to court on Wednesday to seek a declaration that the oath Raila Odinga took on January 30 is treasonable,” Mr Kuria said during the burial of the sister of Nyeri Woman Representative Rahab Mukami in Othaya, Nyeri over the weekend.

He added: “We are being told to respect the Judiciary, yet while the court declared that President Kenyatta won the election, Raila Odinga was sworn contrary to a court order. If Chief Justice David Maraga has been waiting for someone to question him on this issue, then I have offered myself to do it.”

The new move by Kuria comes nearly a fortnight after Miguna Miguna, who administered the oath was put in a police cell and later deported by the Government of Kenya, a move whose case is yet to be resolved. Several lawmakers and leaders who accompanied Mr Odinga at Uhuru Park have been questioned by police in the recent past.

Attack on Judiciary

The controversial lawmaker further chided the Judiciary for its perceived silence on the NASA oathing ceremony, despite the event going against a court order that declared Uhuru Kenyatta as the duly-elected president.

After the swearing-in of Mr. Odinga, the government declared a crackdown against facilitators and organisers of the controversial oath.

Prior to the swearing in event, outgoing Attorney General Githu Muigai had warned Odinga that he would be charged with high treason – a crime punishable by death – should he take the oath.
