The High Court has acquitted Ruaraka MP Tom Joseph Kajwang popularly known as TJ Kajwang of treason charges.
The court says the case against the lawmaker was politically instigated.
Mr Kajwang had been accused of illegally administering an unlawful oath to ODM party leader Raila Odinga on the 30th of January 2018 at Uhuru Park Nairobi.
TJ Kajwang was on 31st January 2018 arrested outside Milimani Laws Court by plain clothed officers.
Kajwang’ and another lawyer, Miguna Miguna, were at the centre of events at Uhuru Park that culminated in the “swearing-in” of Mr Odinga as the ‘people’s president’.
During the ceremony, Mr Kajwang’ donned a lawyers’ robe and wig and received a thunderous welcome by Nasa supporters.
As Mr Odinga took the “oath”, Mr Kajwang’ stood right behind him, although his role remained unclear.Do you have any story you would like to share? Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will publish it. You can also contact us at email@example.com
