Orengo forced to change strategy in new plan to rescue Miguna
The Lawyers led by Senator James Orengo were compelled to pin the court order on the wall after JKIA officials went into hiding.
Orengo termed the JKIA officials’ move as a cowardice act revealing that they would apprise the judge who expects Miguna to appear in court on Wednesday on the current happenings.
While speaking go Citizen TV, the Siaya senator stated, “It is contemptuous and unfortunate that government officers are afraid receiving lawful court orders. We hope he will be released tonight.”
Justice Roselyn Aburili had on Tuesday given a directive to Interior Cabinet Secretary Fred Matiang’i, Director of Immigration Gordon Kihalangwa, and Inspector-General of Police Joseph Boinett to release the lawyer and so that he makes an appearance in court as earlier stated.
In a statement received on Wednesday the self-proclaimed NRM general revealed that he is locked up in a shabby and unhygienic toilet and he does not have access to compulsory basic needs.
He said, “Despite the court order, and as they have done consistently before, the respondents have not released me.”
Miguna further disclosed that his lawyers have been denied the chance to see him since his illegal detention on Tuesday evening.
The only people who were allowed to see Miguna were Canadian embassy staff and a Kenya National Commission on Human Rights (KNCHR) official.
The lawyer laid blame on the government officials for coercing and punishing him. Miguna’s arm was left incapacitated after an unsuccessful attempt to have him deported to Dubai.
