The US Embassy in Nairobi on Wednesday urged Odinga to cancel his inauguration and a planned demonstration scheduled for December 12.

Donald Yamamoto, the Principal Deputy Assistant Secretary at the USA government's Bureau of African Affairs, warned that Odinga's move would further polarise Kenya.

Odinga on Thursday rejected the US advice to cancel next week's event, saying he doesn't recognize the legitimacy of Kenyatta as president.

The NASA chief was responding to US Acting Assistant Secretary of State for African Affairs Donald Yamamoto who met him on Tuesday and also pushed for dialogue with President Uhuru Kenyatta.

The roster now includes "The Good Fight " and "Star Trek: Discovery ", both spinoffs, as well as the comedy series "No Activity ". Simon Kinberg and Marco Ramirez are also listed as executive producers.

But the opposition leader said his swearing-in and the establishment of peoples' assemblies is to protest electoral injustices that have taken place in Kenya.

Police have disputed Nasa tallies in the past, saying only a few dozen people died in clashes that rocked Nairobi and several counties in western Kenya.

Mr Odinga has insisted that he won the August 8 presidential poll and accuses the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) of rigging him out.

He has since announced the formation of a national resistance movement that is exerting pressure on the government to promote rule of law, electoral reforms and human rights.

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.

He will also face charges of undermining a legitimate Government and treason which is punishable by death.

During a news briefing on Thursday, Muigai warned the opposition group that swearing in a president who's not officially been declared the victor is high treason, an offense that can result in the death penalty. "Parliament has not delegated any such power and the effect for that is that those institutions are unconstitutional, illegal and are null and void", he said.

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