Miguna Miguna has been arraigned in a court in Kajiado according to the office of the director of public prosecutions. The self-proclaimed NRM general was supposed to be present at Milimani Law Court, together with Inspector General of Police Joseph Boinett. According to the charge sheet, Miguna was charged with being present and consenting to the administration of an oath to commit a capital offence namely treason contrary to Section 59 (a) of the penal code. He, however, refused to take plea in Kajiado and asked to be moved to Nairobi.

Miguna’s lawyers have asked for the case to be moved to Milimani, saying he must be presented before the court before anything is accomplished. “Any national security organs are subordinate to civilian authority and this court is the highest representation of civilian authority so everything must be subordinate to this,” said Otiende Amollo after the IG failed to appear before the court. “I suggest we do not listen to stories until Miguna Miguna is brought dead or alive.”  Earlier, police hurled tear gas canisters at NASA supporters who had gathered at Milimani Law Courts.
