Kenya says 'swearing-in' of Odinga would be seen as treason

Kenya's Attorney-General Githu Muigai has warned against plans to swear in the National Super Alliance (Nasa) leader, Raila Odinga as the "people's president" on December 12. "It is high treason of the persons involved, and any other person facilitating that process", he told a news conference.

"The constitution of Kenya provides in clear terms in Article 2 (2) that no person may claim state authority except as authorised by the constitution".

"What is the punishment for high treason?"

Kenya's main opposition group says police have detained one of its advisers ahead of a planned protest ceremony to stage a mock inauguration of Raila Odinga as president.

He added that counties that have passed the People's Assembly motion should be ready to be held to account. But the Supreme Court nullified the result, and a repeat election was held on October 26.

Odinga also repeated his accusations against Kenya security forces, saying dozens of people have been killed in the months of election unrest and "nobody is talking about it".

On a visit to the Kenyan capital Nairobi on Wednesday Donald Yamamoto, the acting top diplomat for Africa in the USA government, urged Odinga to call off his planned swearing-in and instead "work within Kenya's laws" to seek reform. Kenyatta won again, with 98 percent of the vote.

Prof Muigai said the government would not stop at anything to prevent the breach of the rule of law and the constitution.

The AG's warning came hours after Odinga told the U.S. and other western powers that have advised against the planned swearing-in plan to back off.

"We thought we had friends but we were wrong and now we know they are enemies".
