"The United States urges opposition leaders to work within Kenya's laws to pursue the reforms they seek and to avoid extra-constitutional actions such as the proposed "inauguration ceremony" on December 12", the U.S. Embassy said in a statement.

Odinga successfully challenged Kenyatta's August re-election but then boycotted the new vote in October, demanding electoral reforms. Raila Odinga, Kalonzo Musyoka And Their Men Will Hate This!

Kenyatta was inaugurated November 28 after winning an election rerun a month earlier, in which Odinga refused to run over voting integrity concerns.

Lone said Odinga has also always been open to a dialogue as he had sought it before elections to ensure that it would be credibly done, but there was no interest in the dialogue nor in holding an honest election.

Plans by a Kenyan political coalition to swear in their candidate as president would be a treasonable offense, Kenya Attorney-General Githu Muigai warned Thursday.

"The People's Assembly is an institution totally unknown to the constitution of Kenya and totally unknown to the County Governments Act".

He termed as illegitimate, the formation of People's Assemblies by various County Assemblies which he said do not possess such powers.

He questioned why they turned a blind eye when Kenyans were brutalised by the security forces, failed to talk on election fraud yet they were very loud on the consequences of his plans to be sworn in as president.

However, opposition leader Raila Odinga's spokesman Salim Lone said the planned swearing-in is on course despite fears expressed by the government. "Constitution my foot!" Raila said.

"We now know that those people that have been posing as our friends are indeed our enemies because up to today, 215 people have been killed since August 8 General Election by police yet not even one ambassador has come out to condemn the wanton killings", he said. "Kenyan problems can only be solved by the people of Kenya", said Mr Odinga.

The opposition paid mortuary fees and provided transport for the bereaved families and also offered Sh50,000 to each family to help in the burial expenses.
