"We call on the government to respect and implement the judicial decision", said Rupert Colville, spokesperson for the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights.

He is accused of facilitating the chaos witnessed after the purported swearing in with the police maintaining that the legislator was among those who organized the event at Uhuru Park.

It added that the resolution should be with full respect for the rule of law and the rights to freedom of expression, association, assembly and political participation. He was driven to the court precincts at 6 am under tight security.

Omtatah said he would return to court on Monday.

He is facing charges of being present and consenting, and administering of an illegal oath to commit a serious capital offense, termed as treason, contrary to section 59 (a) of the penal code of the 2010 constitution of Kenya. Let them arrest everyone who was at Uhuru Park. As a result, NTV, KTN and Citizen TV were shutdown at about 09:10am local time.

He pasted the order on the gate of the authority, but the men tore it down, he said. "Media organisations that disregarded this advice were shut down".

The Ministry in a separate statement described broadcasting the event as an attempt to "subvert or overthrow" the government - "would have led to the deaths of thousands of innocent Kenyans".

Last October, Odinga formed the NRM from his National Super Alliance (NASA) political movement to pressure the government to demand that President Uhuru Kenyatta step aside and to call for a new free, fair and credible election.

While Miguna lost in his bid to become governor of Nairobi past year and holds no official position within NASA, he is the self-styled "general" of the party's "National Resistance Movement" wing which is tasked with implementing a threatened programme of civil disobedience and boycotts.

Kenyatta won with more than 98 percent of the vote.

Kenya's Supreme Court, had cancelled initial victory by Mr Kenyatta citing "irregularities and illegalities".
