Government warns Raila 5 days to his swearing-in

Raila's swearing in is set for December 12

AG Prof Githu Muigai has send a stunning warning to Odinga , stating that any swearing ceremony not presided by the Chief Justice is null and void.

“The swearing in of any person who was not announced as a winner by the IEBC is illegal and amounts to treason” said AG Githu Muigai

The AG also noted that the people behind the NASA idea of “People’s Assembly” will be punished by the government.

“The concept of Peoples Assembly is alien to the Kenyan Constitution” said AG Muigai

Muigai who serves as the legal advisor to the government explained that NASA’s plan will be in violation of Constitution Article 3(2), obligating everyone to uphold and respect the Constitution.

Odinga has insisted that he would take the oath of office on December 12, after which he would march to State House.

Raila Odinga's swearing in

The Opposition has justified its decision as premised on Article 1 of the constitution which stated that all sovereign power belongs to the Kenyan people, as justification to swear in Raila as the People's President.

The Penal Code stipulates that anyone who tries to form a government contrary to the Constitution should face charges of sedition, undermining a legitimate government and treason, which is punishable by death.
