Distinguished law professor, Makau Mutua,has broken his silence.Yesterday,the professor couldn’t be silent, he had one or two words for Kenya’s Attorney General Githu Muigai concerning the swearing in of Raila Odinga.This is the wisdom Mutua donated to Githu Muigai:
Good morning NRMs,
IF I WERE GITHU MUIGAI – PROF MAKAU MUTUA
“…If I were the Attorney General of the republic of Kenya, I would gather the temerity, face Uhuru on his face and lecture him in black and white, about the legal texture around the impending Odinga’s 12th December coronation. I would tell my “boss” that in as much as we try to camouflage under the illusive jurisprudential interpretation of the law, to legitimise his stay in office, the Odinga’s inaugural has a very strong legal anchorage in our constitution. This is in actual sense, irrefutably true.
The moment Raila joined the two extreme dots together, with the idea of the People’s Assemby, his intentions escaped the wrath of treason. Nowhere in the constitution 2010, is such a move treated or otherwise held as treasonous. And by the way, Raila Odinga is very smart. I must commend him for being too selective and provident in terms of choosing his legal advisors. He’s surrounded by the country’s top cream in the legal arena. I can unequivocally assure you that Odinga will have his way come 12th December and any sane lawyer would be with me in the same wavelength.
