NASA issues 1 request to Matiangi after the arrest of TJ Kajwang

NASA leaders were teargassed as they marched to Nairobi Area Police station demanding to see Kajwang

“Police are saying that they are investigating those who attended Raila’s swearing-in, let them tell us one police station to report to, and will turn ourselves in. They should be ready to host the three million people who attended the swearing in at Uhuru Park," the Legislator stated.

Rarieda MP Otiende Amollo added that, they were at Milimani laws courts to have Kajwang released but they were told charges against him were not ready.

“We came to court and have seen him [Ruaraka MP TJ Kajwang] at the basement and now we are being told the charge is not ready”  Amollo said.

This comes hours after it was revealed that the arrested MP , faces a death sentence following his acts of administering oath to the former Prime Minister on Tuesday.

According to the Constitution section 59 and 60 of the penal code, any person who is present at administering oath, is guilty of a felony and is liable to imprisonment for life or death sentence.

The section talks about illegal oaths purporting to bind the person who takes it to commit any offence punishable with death.

Section 59 says: “any person who is present at, and consents to the administering of, any oath, or engagement in the nature of an oath, purporting to bind the person who takes it to commit any offence punishable with death; or takes any such oath or engagement, not being compelled to do so, is guilty of a felony and is liable to imprisonment for life.”

The penal code continues to state that, “Any person who administer an oath or engagement in the nature of an oath, purporting to bind the person who takes it to commit any offence, punishable with death, is guilty of felony and shall be sentenced to death”

Kajwang was arrested a day after he attended NASA leader Raila Odinga's swearing-in as the "People's President" before thousands at the historic Uhuru Park grounds.
