This is what Miguna Miguna has been charged with.

The self-proclaimed NRM General Miguna Miguna was on Tuesday morning arraigned before Kajiado Court but refused to take a plea while insisting he is charged in Nairobi.

According to the charge sheet presented in court, Miguna was charged with being present and consenting to the administration of an oath to commit a capital offense namely treason contrary to Section 59 (a) of the penal code.

The police charge sheet outlines three charges against Miguna – among them binding NASA leader Raila Odinga to commit treason, being a member of the outlawed National Resistance Movement and organising an illegal assembly at Uhuru Park where the oath was taken. 

“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,” the charge sheet read .

“...charged with administration binding Raila Odinga to commit a capital offence namely treason contrary to Section 59 of the Penal Code,” it continued.

Miguna did not take a plea to the charges and demanded that he be released so that he can see his family in Nairobi.

“I cannot take any plea because the state has denied me access to my family. For five days, I have been locked up unlawfully,” he said.

Miguna had been mysteriously missing after police failed to produce him in court on Tuesday.
Judge Luka Kimaru issued orders requiring the lawyer to be personally produced in court by IG Joseph Boinnet and DCI boss George Kinoti.

While claiming that the charge sheet is defective and looks suspicious, Miguna’s advocates requested the court to direct the Kajiado court to release their client and his file to Milimani court.
