Kenya says 'swearing-in' of Odinga would be seen as treason

US wants NASA leader Raila Odinga to abandon his swearing-in plan

"Parliament has not delegated any such power and the outcome for that is that those institutions are unconstitutional, illegal and are null and void", said the Attorney General.

The penal code says anyone who tries to form a Government contrary to the Constitution could face charges of sedition.

The Nasa coalition is planning to swear in Raila Odinga using the results of the August 8 presidential election on Tuesday to coincide with Republic (Jamhuri) Day celebrations although they have not disclosed the venue.

Odinga's National Super Alliance said in a statement that the detained man, economist David Ndii, was recently appointed chairman of a committee organizing the protest event on December 12.

So far, 12 Kenyan counties have passed motions supporting the formation of a people's assembly, majority counties that had backed the opposition in Kenya's protracted voting.

European Union 'tax haven' blacklist labelled a 'whitewash'
Higher-tax countries like France have pushed for the blacklist as well as a crackdown on tax havens in the European Union as well. The penalties could include special documentation requirements and withholding tax measures.

Yamamoto's warning followed a meeting with Odinga and Nasa principals Musalia Mudavadi, Moses Wetang'ula and Makueni Governor Kivutha Kibwana, representing Wiper leader Kalonzo Musyoka, who is away. Odinga boycotted that vote, saying reforms needed to avoid "illegalities and irregularities" had not been made.

"Since 8th of August, 215 people have been killed by the police force yet no one has spoken about it yet they have the audacity to tell us forget and move on", Raila said. Kenyatta won with over 98 percent of the votes and was inaugurated last week.

Many Kenyans are challenging Kenyatta's sweeping victory in the October rerun elections, which saw a low turn-out, and once again claiming fraud.

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