The tough task Miguna has been slapped today by the Court ruling
Miguna was arrested on Friday morning.
A court order seen by Pulse Live Kenya demanded that Dr Miguna serve the IG in person the order, amid his release on a Sh50,000 cash bail after his lawyers battled for hours after he was arrested at his Runda home.
“That this Order be served upon the Inspector General of Police personally to effect the same on any of the officers who are holding the Applicant,” the judge ordered, meaning that for him to be released the IG must be reached.
Meanwhile, High court Judge James Wakiaga released Miguna, who is also the leader of the outlawed NRM, on a Ksh.50,000 cash bail.
The orders were issued after Miguna Miguna through lawyer Mr Nelson Havi moved to court under a certificate of urgency seeking court orders to have police release him on bail.
Miguna Miguna argued that the powers to arrest are being abused by the police and used to oppress him.
This comes after police raided and ransacked in home in Runda estate, Nairobi on Friday February 2, morning.
Miguna Miguna is the second National Super Alliance (NASA) leader to be arrested Ruaraka MP TJ Kajwang was nabbed on Wednesday January 1, over the self-‘inauguration’ of Raila Odinga on Tuesday, January 30, at Uhuru Park in Nairobi.
Dared CS Matiang’i
On Thursday Miguna sent a daring message to Interior and National Government Coordination Cabinet Secretary Dr Fred Matiang’i to arrest him, as he is the one who administered the controversial oath to Raila Odinga on Tuesday at Uhuru Park.
Speaking to the press earlier, the once anti-Raila crusader told the CS to, in fact, arrest him alongside Mr Odinga, as “he is the one who signed the oath and conducted it.”
“I’m the one who signed the oath and conducted it. If they want to look for the person who is responsible it is me and Odinga. Let them come for us!” he yelled.
On Tuesday, through his law firm, Miguna Miguna & Company Advocates, the abrasive Canada-educated lawyer commissioned the oath that was administered on Mr Odinga.
Dr Miguna’s vessel on Friday sunk after he raised the alarm on a police raid at his home. He said police stormed his home early morning and ransacked it.
“The police have bombed their way into my house. I can't speak on the phone right now. They have ransacked the house!!” he said.
He added: “Some are still hiding in the compound and my house hoping that I make a move so that they can shoot me and claim that there was a ‘shootout!’ I’m staying put!”
His arrest comes a day after the arrest Ruaraka Member of Parliament Tom Joseph Kajwang who was charged with participating in an illegal assembly and administering an illegal oath. It is still not clear if he will be arraigned in court today.
