Anxiety is mounting over the whereabouts of a legislator arrested for attending Odinga's swearing-in
Here is what Kenyans are saying about Miguna's whereabouts
Miguna Miguna was apprehended on Friday morning at his Karen home in Nairobi in what was a state crackdown on participants in last Tuesday's oath ceremony.
The 'self-proclaimed' National Resistance Movement (NRM) leader has remained in police custody since then despite a court order that he be released on a Sh50,000 cash bail.
Questions have now emerged over his whereabouts after police failed to present him at a Milimani Court on Monday afternoon despite a court order.
Miguna's lawyer John Khaminwa told the Court that he feared for the life of his client, who reportedly suffered an asthma attack on Sunday while in police custody.
We have come to you with a very heavy heart, we fear for the life of Miguna Miguna. Is he alive? Is he dead? Is he in the hospital?" Mr. Khaminwa told the judge.
"These are incidents that keep on coming to our heads. Miguna has a family which does not live in Kenya but in Canada. The family is anxious to know what has happened to our bread-winner Miguna Miguna," he added.
Mr Khaminiwa's sentiments were shared online by a section of Kenyans who now want the government to come clear on the lawyer's whereabouts.
High Court Judge Luka Kimaru has ordered Inspector General of Police Joseph Boinett and Director of Criminal Investigations (DCI) George Kinoti to personally appear in court on Tuesday morning to explain their failure to produce Miguna Miguna in court. Justice Kimaru said the two were in contempt of court after disobeying a previous order to produce Miguna in court on Monday afternoon.
