Controversial lawyer Miguna Miguna revealed that he was shocked when he found framed pictures of President Uhuru Kenyatta and DP Dr William Ruto at ODM party leader Raila Odinga's house after the swearing-in.
Miguna reveals 1 thing that shocked him during visit to Raila's home after swearing-in
What nagged Miguna inside Raila's home
In his new book – Treason: The Case Against Tyrants and Renegades, Dr Miguna narrated how Mr Odinga ushered them to a dining room upstairs where they found a large rectangular room with hundreds of neatly framed images of African leaders, including those of Uhuru and Ruto.
Miguna said that the pictures nagged his mind as they suggested that Raila had recognised the two as legitimately elected leaders.
“What do the pictures really mean? Why has Raila framed Uhuru and Ruto’s images if he is only preparing an office for himself, as the People’s President?" Miguna wrote.
"Isn’t framing and hanging their portraits symbolise recognition? So, what was that oath for if not symbolically a total rejection of both men as holding public office illegitimately?” an excerpt stated.
Miguna further revealed how Mombasa Governor Ali Joho, Ruaraka MP TJ Kajwang’ and Kisumu Woman Rep Rosa Buyu, tried to convince him to swear in Joho as Raila’s 'deputy' after Kalonzo Musyoka allegedly chickened out.
He wrote: “As Raila was speaking, Joho, Buyu and Kajwang’ were pulling my jacket from behind and insisting that I should swear Joho in as Raila’s deputy... I told them that I would not do it because that was not my instruction.”
The evening after the swearing-in, Miguna states that Raila instructed Senators George Khaniri (Vihiga) and Cleophas Malala (Kakamega) to plan how they will push out Musalia Mudavadi and Senator Moses Wetangula.
“You,” he said pointing at Khaniri, “You should replace Musalia and Malala can replace Weta at the Senate…" Miguna writes.
“Call a press conference tomorrow and disown them as cowards for failing to attend the swearing-in. I can ask Dennis (Onyango) to arrange a press conference. Then start antagonising them with the people in Western…" Raila added.
