Two private Kenyan TV stations back on air

Kenya ignores court orders, now targets journalists

Odinga insists he, not Kenyatta, was the true victor of a disputed presidential election last August.

Two other opposition lawmakers were also arrested and later released for their involvement in the ceremony.

A Kenyan opposition lawyer, Miguna Miguna, has been charged with treason over the mock "swearing in" as president of opposition leader Raila Odinga.

Around 100 people were killed during the protracted election season, majority Odinga supporters shot by the police.

This came in the backdrop of Miguna's decline on taking a plea at the Kajiado Court where he had been arraigned earlier.

Justice Kimaru had on Monday morning summoned the IG and DCI to appear in court at 2 pm to give an explanation as to why they should evade judges of contempt for failing to comply with orders issued on Friday for the release of Miguna.

In the first charge Miguna is accused of 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.

Mr Odinga was asked for his reaction to Mr Miguna's arrest.

"I will not get out of this court until he is released", he said, as people in court shouted: "We want Miguna!"

Maverick the freedom of Lawyer Miguna Miguna still hangs in the balance hours after High Court Judge Justice Luka Kimaru ordered his immediate release from police custody 5 days after his dramatic arrest last Friday. Police used tear gas and fired warning shots to disperse them.

Also on Tuesday, the government suspended the passport of David Ndii, an opposition strategist, according to a letter he posted on Twitter.

The Supreme Court later nullified the August election on procedural grounds and Kenyatta won a repeat poll in October after Odinga boycotted it, claiming it would not be fair.

Two Kenyan television channels shut down by the government over their coverage of the political opposition resumed partial broadcasting on Monday although a third channel remained off the air.

"There is no way they can arrest our general and jail him for one week before presenting him to court", protester Denis Ouma said.
