Judge orders Boinnet to produce Miguna in Court by 2pm

High Court Judge Luka Kimaru has issued a stern directive to top police heads to produce Miguna Miguna in court by 2pm.

“I want the applicant to be brought before court for me to give further directions.  Tell the IG and DCI that I do not want confrontations.”

“Let us do what is expected and we work together,” justice Kimaru said as quoted by the Star.

Justice Kimaru said the Inspector General of Police Joseph Boinett and DCI Boss George Kinoti should comply with the order.

Failure to comply with the orders, the two police bosses will have to appear in court to show-cause or be held in contempt of court.

The DPP’s office told the Judge on Monday that they were having problems in getting instructions from the police.

According to State lawyer Peter Malinyani, he told the Judge that  Nairobi DCI boss Ireri Kamwende told them he had no instructions regarding Miguna’s release.

Malinyani was required to respond to the suit as directed by the Judge on Friday.

Miguna was dramatically arrested on Friday morning at his Runda home by police who raided his house over his role in the unofficial swearing-in of Raila Odinga on Tuesday as the People’s President.

The self-proclaimed NRM general was taken to court and released on Sh50, 000 bond but he was never released.

He has been at the Lari Police station. His lawyer Nelson Havi and Edwin Sifuna said he has been denied medical attention despite the fact that he has been suffering from asthma attack.

“We are concerned because Miguna is not in good health and police have refused him to access his doctor and lawyer,” said Havi.
