Attorney General Githu Muigai has once again weighed in on the swearing in of NASA leader Raila Odinga.

Muigai says the constitution must be upheld, adding that any swearing in by a person who has not been declared by IEBC after an election is null and void.

He further notes that parliament has not delegated any power and the institutions are illegal, unconstitutional and null and void.

He has also warned all those involved that they will be met by the full force of the law.

“The constitution is the supreme law of Kenya, and it binds its persons and all state organs at both levels of government,”

“It is therefore not possible in this country to have two sets of laws operating in two sets of individuals within our society,”

“There have been media reports suggesting that following the swearing in of President Kenyatta and his deputy William Ruto, there is propose to be the swearing in of another person or persons on the 12th December,”

“The constitution of Kenya provides in clear terms that no person may claim or exercise state authority except as authorized by the constitution. The swearing in of any person not lawfully declared by the IEBC to have won an election is illegal, null and void,”

“The criminal law of Kenya in Article 40 of the penal code stipulates that that sort of process is high treason,”
