Self-proclaimed National Resistant Movement general Miguna Miguna has been charged at a Kajiado court but refused to take a plea.
This was revealed by the assistant DPP Nicholas Mutuku in the High Court in Nairobi on Tuesday days after Miguna was arrested and held in secret.
Police charge sheet stated that the lawyer was liable for being present and consenting to NASA leader Raila Odinga’s oath.
“…charged with administration binding Raila Odinga to commit a capital offence namely treason contrary to Section 59 of the Penal Code,” the charge sheet read.
He was also charged with being part of an assembly and also as being a professed member of a proscribed group – NRM.
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.
