Court orders release of Miguna Miguna

Miguna was arrested on Friday morning.

Miguna was also ordered to appear in court in person on Monday next week. The court in a ruling also granted Mr Miguna a Sh50,000 cash bail.  The self-declared National Resistance Movement (NRM) General Miguna Miguna was arrested on Friday morning, shortly after he raised the alarm on a police raid at his home.

The Director of Criminal Investigations Mr George Kinoti confirmed that he was arrested for administering an illegal oath and being a member of NRM, a proscribed organisation.

“He (Mr Miguna) publicly declared that he is the general of NRM, which is already declared a proscribed group. By the time he declared publicly, there was a gazette notice by the minister. How can we let it go? We are law enforcers,” said Mr Kinoti.

He added: “He also said he is going to lead people to burn portraits of a democratically elected president. Then what do you expect from us? He also confessed he is the one who administered the oath.”
