Boinnet vow to NASA

Police boss issues threats to NASA

Boinnet said that Opposition leaders found breaking the law would be apprehended.

"We are serving the people in a constitutional manner. Break the law and face the consequences. We will arrest them. We are matching ahead and no going back. We are serving the people in accordance with the Constitution,” said Boinnet

The police boss further denied that he had defied court orders to release Miguna Miguna on February 6, 2018.

The Standard reports that Boinnet denied failing to appear in court despite orders by Judge Luka Kimaru to do so.

“I did not disobey the order of this court. At the time I received the information that the DCI and I were required to be present before the court, I was already scheduled to attend a meeting," said Boinnet

The Government has been conducting arrests of Opposition politicians who were at the mock ‘swearing-in’ of NASA principal Raila Odinga as the ‘people’s president’.

Ruaraka MP TJ Kajwang’ was on January 30 arrested by Police because of  administering the 'oath'. The legislator was later released on a cash bail of Sh50,000.

Self-declared general of the National Resistance Movement (NRM) was dramatically arrested in his Runda home on 2 February for being linked to the Odinga’s ‘oath’.

Miguna was taken to a Kajiado court on treason charges but refused to take a plea. Police refused to produce him in the Milimani Courts despite orders by the court to do so.

It finally emerged that the government resorted to deporting him to Canada on Tuesday night. This move has been viciously protested by NASA politicians saying that Miguna is a Kenyan by birth and can therefore not lose his citizenship.

As a result, NASA lawyers led by James Orengo have moved to court in order to have Miguna returned to Kenya.

IG Boinnet was speaking at a function in Kiganjo Police Training College in Nyeri County.
