Miguna's lawyer blames Raila-Uhuru handshake for trouble facing NRM general

Orengo claimed that Miguna's return was part of Uhuru-Raila deal

Ombeta stated that Miguna's opposition to the famous handshake could be the main reason why the state was heavily opposed to the general's return.

"This is political. Remember Miguna has opposed the handshake between Kenyatta and Odinga. Most of the people who welcomed him at the airport were saying the resistance should continue. It could well be that his position is contributing to the problem," Ombeta stated.

He added that the general's lawyers would move to court seeking for an order requiring the state to release Miguna.

The Nairobi lawyer complained that the NRM general was being illegally detained and had been denied access to his legal counsel.
