Embakasi East Member of Parliament Babu Owino claims that there is a scheme by Jubilee government to hand him a death sentence.
Speaking in an interview on Hot 96FM on Wednesday, the youthful MP accused the government of mistreating him and was planning to charge him with treason, which attracts a death penalty.
There are plans to charge me with treason and hand me a death sentence." He claimed.
The penal code states that “any person who is guilty of the offence of treason shall be sentenced to death.”
The youthful was arrested on Monday last and was charged with subversion, offensive language and incitement to violence. This was after making a slur directed at President Uhuru Kenyatta during a National Super Alliance rally in Nairobi.
He was rearrested shortly after he was released on sh 500,000 cash bail, and was charged with assaulting a voter the following day.
Last week, the former Students Organization of Nairobi University (SONU) chairman alleged that police officers tried to inject him with mercury after sending street children to harass him while at the cell room.
