Odinga withdrew from the repeat presidential poll on October 26 despite taking part in the August 26 ballot in which President Kenyatta was declared the victor.

The Supreme Court dismissed three petitions against the result, paving the way for Mr Kenyatta to be sworn in for his second and last term.

But Prof Muigai declared any attempt to swear in Mr Odinga as president is treasonable and any persons involved in the scheme will be prosecuted.

"This also includes being an accessory after the fact to treason and failing to give information to designated public bodies for the objective of preventing commission of the offence", he warned.
