BY KORIR JUMA,NAIROBI,6TH FEB 2018-Lawyer Miguna Miguna is free at last after high Court judge Luka Kimaru  directed police to immediately release him.

The judge said that Mr Miguna remains free on the Sh50,000 anticipatory bail granted on Friday.

He said Mr Miguna was within the courthouse and that he would ensure his release.

“I have just been informed that Miguna is here. I will not leave until he is brought before me.”

The Kimaru  however added that Mr should appear at Kajiado Law Courts as directed by the magistrate.

The move follows outcry from different  civil society orginizzations as well as NASA supporters who have held protest in various parts of the country to push for his release.

Last Friday, High court judge Chacha Mwita issued orders to the IG to release him so he could appear in court on Monday morning.

The police ignored the order in a-hide and-seek with the lawyers, amidst reports Miguna had suffered asthma while in police custody over the weekend.

Judge Luka Kimaru also issued orders requiring IG Joseph Boinnet and DCI boss George Kinoti to produce the accused in person.

DPP assistant Nicholas Mutuku told a court in Milimani that Miguna is alive and has been charged before Kajiado law court this morning.

Miguna had been released on a Sh50,000 bond on February 2 but was detained at an undisclosed location.

He is among three people, including two MPs, arrested in a crackdown against those who participated in the January 30 ceremony.
