Raila Odinga tells off United States over his swearing-in plan

Muigai did not name anyone but opposition leader Raila Odinga said last month, he would be inaugurated by a people's assembly on December 12 - Kenya's Independence Day. "Parliament has not delegated any such power and the outcome for that is that those institutions are unconstitutional, illegal and are null and void", said the Attorney General.

Such an inauguration would worsen the rifts opened by an acrimonious election season, when more than 70 people died in political violence.

Kenya's Attorney General Githu Muigai said on Thursday that any attempt to hold a parallel swearing in of a president would amount to treason.

. "It is high treason of the persons involved, and any other person facilitating that process", he told a news conference. Treason charges attract the death sentence in Kenya.

Muigai said people's assemblies proposed by the National Super Alliance, Odinga's opposition coalition, were illegal as well.

The Nasa leader urged his supporters to remain steadfast in their quest for electoral justice, adding that they do not recognise the November 28 swearing-in of President Uhuru Kenyatta for the second term.

"The People's Assembly is an institution totally unknown to the constitution of Kenya and totally unknown to the County Governments Act".
