Kenya: All Eyes on Boinnet After Order to Produce Miguna in Person

Three privately owned television stations were shut down last week as they began to cover Odinga's "swearing in".

Demonstrators took to the streets in the west, the heartland of support for Odinga, who maintains he was the victor of an election that returned President Uhuru Kenyatta to power previous year.

The government had shut down transmission of the four popular TV channels last week when they attempted to broadcast the mock inauguration of opposition leader Raila Odinga as the "people's president".

The Judge was furious by the Government's actions of not following the court orders as enshrined in the constitution by not charging a suspect within 24 hours after being arrested.

Mr. Edwin Sifuna, his lawyer rushed to court to obtain orders directing that his client be released on Sh50,000 bond pending his arraignment in court on Monday. A spokesman for the government was not available for comment.

The DCI said that the former Nairobi Gubernatorial candidate was apprehended for administering an illegal oath and being a member of NRM, a movement that has since been outlawed by the Government.

Madowo noted the transmitters for Citizen TV were in a different place, which might explain the delay.

The Supreme Court later nullified the August election on procedural grounds and Kenyatta won a repeat poll in October after Odinga boycotted it, claiming it would not be fair.

Since the symbolic inauguration, Odinga and his supporters have repeatedly promised to outline their next step, only to postpone the unveiling of their plan.

"On the 30th day of January 2018, at Uhuru Park in Nairobi County, jointly with others not before court, were present and consented to the administration of an oath to Raila Amollo Odinga purporting to bind the said Raila Amollo Odinga to commit a capital offense of treason". So far police have not arrested Odinga.

Odinga supporters say they are angered by police impunity, persistent government corruption and the perceived neglect of large swathes of the country by the central government.
