Miguna breaks silence 5 days after arrest

I have my lawyers as well.

The self-declared National Resistance Movement General told off the court session that he could not take plea in a Kajiado Court as his case was booked for a High Court session in Nairobi’s Milimani Law Courts.

“I cannot take a plea here in Kajiado as Justice Kimaru is waiting for me in Nairobi Law Courts,” he said to a silent court, hours after word emerged that he had been charged in a Kajiado Court for treason, after “he aided Raila Odinga commit an illegality.”

He added: "I cannot take any plea because the State has denied me access to my family. For five days, I have been locked up unlawfully."

Miguna was sought after by his lawyers for two days running, after police failed to avail him in court following the orders given by High Court Judge Luka Kimaru at Milimani Law Courts in Nairobi.

This comes even as demonstrations raptured in Kisumu and Migori Counties, with dozens of youth demanding that police release Miguna or produce him in court for charges.

A photo of Miguna emerged following his arrest on Friday, January 2, 2018. In the picture, Mr. Miguna who was allegedly before a Kajiado court on Tuesday morning is seen alighting from a black vehicle. He has also been charged with unlawful involvement in a criminally organised group (National Resistance Movement) and treason.

Summoned to DCI

The politicians have been given an anticipatory bail of Sh 100,000 and are set to appear for grilling for having attended the controversial swearing-in ceremony of Nasa leader Raila Odinga on January 30 at Uhuru Park in Nairobi.

The Court sitting in Nairobi on Tuesday ordered the police, not to arrest any of the Nasa leaders who attended the controversial oath.

Already the police, in the recent crackdown, have arrested Ruaraka MP Tom Kajwang for participating “directly in the illegal event to swear-in Nasa leader Raila Odinga.”
