Kenyan opposition group says top adviser is in detention

The National Super Alliance (NASA) has written to 11 governors whose counties have approved the formation of People's Assembly, requesting for a venue where opposition chief Raila Odinga swearing in ceremony will be held. "The criminal law of the Republic of Kenya stipulates that sort of process is high treason".

"It is high treason in respect of the person so involved and any other person facilitating that process", he said.

"These institutions are unconstitutional they are illegal, they are null and void".

Yamamoto said the opposition should "avoid extra-constitutional actions such as the proposed "inauguration ceremony".

"The western countries should, therefore, keep off the affairs of the country as Kenyan problems will only be solved by Kenyans themselves".
