Garissa Township MP Aden Duale now claims that NASA leader Raila Odinga plans to flee the country after his December 12, 2017, planned swearing-in.

Speaking to journalists at the Milimani Law Courts in Nairobi on Wednesday, Duale claimed that Raila is aware of the consequences that await him if he swears himself as president.

He alleged that the former Prime Minister (PM) will flee to a neighboring country which he claimed is supporting his political activities.

"We are aware of what Raila is planning and it is better for him to call off the planned swearing and save himself from the trouble that awaits him," he said.

Duale said that Raila is stripping low by perpetuating activities that contravene the constitution.

He said that President Uhuru Kenyatta's government will not be shaken by Raila's alleged political gimmicks.

The leader of Majority in the National Assembly stated that Jubilee government will continue to discharge its duties whether Raila swears himself president or not.

Pressure is mounting on Raila to call off his planned swearing-in which has been termed illegal and unconstitutional.

On Wednesday, the United States government warned Raila against his planned swearing-in, asking him to call it off and allow for dialogue with Jubilee government.

Raila, however, maintains that his planned swearing-in on December 12, 2017, is on.

The ODM party leader states that he does not recognize president Uhuru Kenyatta's government and that the people's assembly will swear him as president.

Political analysts and constitutional experts are warning Raila against the swearing-in which they say is unconstitutional and amounts to treason, an offense whose punishment is death.
