What police did to Miguna Miguna after re-arresting him
On Thursday, Miguna Miguna dared CS Matiang'i to arrest him
The avid National Resistance Movement leader, whose release was ordered by a High court on Friday, has not been effected as the police changed his cell overnight. Mr Sifuna, through his twitter on Saturday, claimed that he suspected of a plot to have Miguna detained within Kiambu County.
“Just as we suspected Miguna was moved overnight from Githunguri but is still within Kiambu County. We have fanned out to various outposts in the County to find him,” he wrote on his twitter, after hours of pursuing Miguna’s freedom.
Milimani High Court Judge James Wakiaga on Friday ordered the immediate release of NRM's Miguna Miguna.
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.”
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.
