Attorney-General warns Odinga's inauguration would be treason

Cambodia seizes shipment of ivory hidden in hollow logs

The US, Odinga said, should not talk about the violation of the constitution as far as his swearing-in is concerned yet Washington DC has been "loudly silent" on killing of innocent protesters by police since August.

However, opposition leader Raila Odinga's spokesman Salim Lone said the planned swearing-in is on course despite fears expressed by the government. It came as the top US official for African affairs, Donald Yamamoto, visited the East African economic hub and met with government officials and opposition leaders.

But the opposition leader said his swearing-in and the establishment of peoples' assemblies is to protest electoral injustices that have taken place in Kenya.

Many Kenyans are challenging Kenyatta's sweeping victory in the October rerun elections, which saw a low turn-out, and once again claiming fraud.

Lone said Odinga has also always been open to a dialogue as he had sought it before elections to ensure that it would be credibly done, but there was no interest in the dialogue nor in holding an honest election.

He had argued that the mistakes that brought about the annulment of the August 8 vote was most likely to be repeated because reforms have not been taken at the electoral body including the resignations of staffers who bungled the August 8 general elections.

Plans by a Kenyan political coalition to swear in their candidate as president would be a treasonable offense, Kenya Attorney-General Githu Muigai warned Thursday.

"What is the punishment for high treason? Parliament has not delegated any such power and the effect for that is that those institutions are unconstitutional, illegal and are null and void", said the Attorney General.

The section dwells, among others, on deposing by unlawful means of the President and Government with the death sentence prescribed for any person found guilty of the offence.

He termed as illegitimate, the formation of People's Assemblies by various County Assemblies which he said do not possess such powers.

At the same time, the AG warned the 11 counties that passed the people's assembly motion, saying they have committed illegalities.
