ODM Asks Kenyans to Arrest Interior CS Fred Matiang'i

  • The Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) on Thursday asked Kenyans to arrest Interior CS Fred Matiang'i, Inspector General Joseph Boinnet, Director of Criminal Investigations (DCI) George Kinoti and Immigration Principal Secretary Gordon Kahalangwa on sight.

    The ODM officials made the remarks after the senior state officials ignored court orders requiring the release of the self-declared National Resistance Movement (NRM) leader Miguna Miguna who has since been deported to Dubai for the second time in a span of two months.

    "We on Kenyans of goodwill, members of the bar, civil society & the church to come out at an appointed date next week to effect the court orders by arresting the convicted criminals, Matiangi, Kinoti, Kihalangwa & Boinnnet and bring these fugitives before the law.

    "ODM shall fight side by side with the judiciary. We reiterate the Call by Justice Odunga that no one is above the law. We wish to remind all Kenyans that the Power of the people is always stronger than the people in power," the Party wrote through its Twitter account.

    The Raila Odinga led party further called upon Chief Justice David Maraga to deny the four any audience in all courts until Miguna is brought to the country.

    "We urge the judiciary specifically to deny audience in all courts in the Republic to the Ministry of Interior, The DCI, the Police and Department of Immigration until Miguna Miguna is brought back to the Country and set free unconditionally as ordered by the Court"

    The ODM officials accused the Jubilee regime of disrespecting the rule of law and escalating the culture of impunity in the country following the disregarding and disrespecting of court orders by those in power.

    "As was made clear yesterday by high court judge Odunga this matter has now transcended a private dispute between Dr Miguna and rogue state elements and has reached a level where judicial powers are on trial and the dignity of the courts is being questioned," they stated.

    The senior officials also failed to appear in court over the ongoing case about the deported NRM leader with judge Odunga being asked to punish their lawyer.

    Mr Miguna was deported after he blatantly declined to either apply for a Kenyan Visa or sign forms to regain his Kenyan citizenship.
