Kenyan opposition group says top adviser is in detention

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.

Under Kenyan law, treason is punishable by death.

"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".

Kenya Police stand accused of shooting and killing dozens in violent protests that followed August 8 General Election and October 26 repeat presidential poll.

Odinga and Kenyatta faced off in an election in August that Kenyatta won.

Kenya's opposition leader has rejected United States advice to cancel a planned mock inauguration of him as president, saying he does not recognise the legitimacy of President Uhuru Kenyatta.

Raila Odinga (third left) and other Nasa leaders attend prayers for people who were killed during post-poll chaos at the City Mortuary in Nairobi.

"We thought we had friends but we were wrong and now we know they are enemies".

"Yet they have the audacity to come and advise us to forget and move on". "Which constitution, my foot", Odinga told reporters in Nairobi.
