NASA dismisses AG Githu Muigai warning to swear-in Raila

SUMMARY
  • Siaya Senator James Orengo dismissed AG Muigai's warning to swear-in Raila Odinga
  • He said that treason is not an easy offence to prove

Siaya Senator James Orengo dismissed Attorney General Githu Muigai’s warning to swear-in National Super Alliance (NASA) leader Raila Odinga on December 12, Jamhuri Day.

AG Muigai on Thursday 7 November said that swearing-in any person who was not lawfully declared president is treason and is punishable by death.

“A swearing-in of any person not lawfully declared to have won an election by the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission and that is not done by the Chief Justice of the Republic of Kenya is null and void ab initio. The punishment of committing treason is death,” said Mr Muigai.

“Notwithstanding the constitutional and legal outcome, there are some misguided propositions being made, suggesting to hold an unconstitutional and illegal “swearing in” of the NASA presidential and deputy presidential candidates in contravention of Article 3 of the Constitution,” he continued. ​

However, the Siaya Senator dismissed the warning claiming that treason is not an easy offence to prove.

“Treason is not an easy offense to prove. First of all the law of treason as exist in Kenya today, is an exemplification of the law of treason as it was when England was in absolute monarchy… But for a civilian to be charged for an offense of treason under the law as it exists, even under the colonial penal code… it is not as easy,” said Orengo.
