Raila swearing-in is treason punishable by death – Githu Muigai

The action of having a parallel government amounts to treason and is punishable by death, Attorney General Githu Muigai has noted.

Muigai said this concerning the swearing-in of Opposition leader Raila Odinga, which he noted amounts to treason.

"The punishment of committing treason is death. The wearing-in of any person not declared by IEBC, and who did not win the election, is unacceptable," he told the press on Thursday.

Githu further noted that if an inauguration is not by Chief Justice David Maraga, it is null, void and illegal

"The criminal law of the Republic of Kenya stipulates that this sort of process is high treason. It is high treason of the persons involved and any other person facilitating that process," he said.

The government has warned that NASA leaders will be punished if they carry out the audacious plan.

Muigai told The Star NASA will be violating Article 3(2) of the constitution, obligating everyone to uphold and respect it.

"Any attempt to establish a government otherwise than in the compliance with this constitution is unlawful," says Subsection 2.

"The law as clear as day and night," Muigai said, adding that anyone violating it will be committing an offence.

NASA, however, cites Article 1 which gives all sovereign power to the Kenyan people, as justification for their move that is part of a larger resistance place.

Their goal is to remove President Uhuru Kenyatta from office.
