BY JOHN WERU,NAIROBI,28TH MARCH 2018- Interior Cabinet Secretary Fred Matiang’i, Inspector General Joseph Boinnet and Immigration Director Gordon Kihalangwa have been convicted for contempt of court.High Court Judge George Odunga has summoned them to appear in court 10am tomorrow for sentencing.
Should they fail to appear in court in person, Justice Odunga said, the court will proceed to sentence them for contempt.
The judge has also ordered that National Super Alliance activist Mr Miguna Miguna be released from detention, at the Jomo Kenyatta International Airport, unconditionally.
The judge added that should the three fail to appear in court tomorrow, they would not be granted any hearing.
“State officers cannot continue to act in contempt and going about their business without respecting courts orders,” said the judge.
“The case now is not about Mr Miguna Miguna but about the dignity of the court which is being put to question as key executives have persistently acted with impunity,” he added on Tuesday.
