BY KORIR JUMA,CORRESPONDENTS,31ST MARCH 2018-ODM leaders have warned lawyer Miguna Miguna against his continued attacks on Mr Raila Odinga.

The leaders who spoke  separately,  said Mr Odinga, the ODM leader, made efforts to save him from deportation.

The leaders said that while they sympathise with Dr Miguna over his tribulations, they would abandon him if he does not respect Mr Odinga.

This comes barely hours after Dr Miguna  blamed Mr Odinga for allegedly failing to help him return to Kenya.

In a statement send from Dubai on Saturday, where he was deported to, Dr Miguna accused Mr Odinga of dining with his oppressors.

“Raila Odinga cannot and should not be enjoying Easter abroad and dining with the tyrants when the person who swore him in as the people’s president is being murdered by those who stole his election and who have killed and maimed his supporters,” he said.

However ODM Secretary-General Edwin Sifuna, Secretary of Political Affairs Opiyo Wandayi, and five more legislatures condemned Dr Miguna’s latest claims.

Mr Sifuna said Dr Miguna’s lawyers were providing pro bono services courtesy of Mr Odinga in a bid to save him, and questioned why the lawyer was bitter.

“We have documented all the efforts Jakom (Mr Odinga) has put in to help Miguna. Mzee has instructed all his lawyers, including myself, to work on the case at great peril.

“The team led by Siaya Senator James Orengo have been on this matter since he was arrested in February,” Mr Sifuna said.

He added: “We have suffered brutality both from police and State sympathisers. Our passports have been revoked! Mzee has personally been coming to court. He was at the airport risking his own safety. I therefore don’t see how anyone can say that Mzee has abandoned Miguna.”

Mr Wandayi said that as much as they sympathise with Miguna, “he must know the boundary.”

He added: “I urge the concerned State officials to facilitate his return to the country as soon as possible so that he can resume his normal life without unnecessary drama.”

However, Mr Atandi said Mr Miguna has become an object being used by forces against the prosperity of Kenya.

According to him ,the issue is a scheme set up by Mr Miguna to undermine Mr Odinga’s credibility.
