By Our Reporter

NAIROBI:  Kenyan Advocate Apollo Mboya has filed a case at the Milimani Law Courts in Nairobi seeking to have Uganda’s First son and General Muhoozi Kainerugaba charged with treason, according to citizen news Kenya.

In his petition, Mboya points out that Muhoozi Keinerugaba made remarks on his social media handle threatening to launch a military invasion to capture Nairobi in a stipulated period of two weeks, which he says is a threat to the country’s territorial integrity.

He notes that Muhoozi has violated Section 43 of the Penal Code which provides for Treasonable felony as follows:

“Any person who, not owing allegiance to the Republic, in Kenya or elsewhere, commits any act or combination of acts which, if it were committed by a person who owed such allegiance, would amount to the offence of treason under section 40, is guilty of a felony and is liable to imprisonment for life.”

The Inspector General of Police and Director of Public Prosecutions have been cited as the 1st and 2nd respondents and are accused of failing to take action following Muhoozi’s remarks.

Mboya wants the court to certify the application as urgent and order that Muhoozi has a prima facie case to answer.
