Former Nairobi Gubernatorial candidate Miguna Miguna has now confirmed that he was arrested for trying to swear in NASA leader Raila Odinga.

Miguna, who is also a self-declared National Resistance Movement (NRM) general, stated that President Uhuru Kenyatta and his deputy William Ruto had ordered for his arrest after learning that he intended to swear in Odinga.

Miguna is one of the die hard NRM supporters who have called for Odinga to be sworn in despite his reluctance to take the oath of office.

During the meeting held at the Sun N Sand in Kikambala, the NASA leader was on two occasions forced to excuse himself from the delegates after they attempted to swear him by force.

Fortunately for Odinga, the tough-talking Canadian based lawyer did not make it to the event after he was arrested along the Mombasa-Malindi Highway.

The NRM General has also complained over the failure of local media to cover his dramatic arrest and detention that lasted for four hours.
