A group of youths from Kibera have blocked the Lang’ata by-pass protesting the arrest of opposition’s self-proclaimed ‘General’ Miguna Miguna on Friday February 2.
The irate youth are reported to have lit bonfires at Olympic area in Kibera just hours after police raided and ransacked Miguna’s home in Runda estate, Nairobi.

In a text seen by KT, Miguna claimed: “They have arrested me. They have bombed my house and broke everything. They are still here. They are searching all rooms. It is an assassination squad. I can’t speak. They are still here looking for me. We need our youth here in numbers. My house is number 486 Runda Meadows. It is urgent and dire.”
Miguna Miguna is the second National Super Alliance (NASA) leader to be arrested after Ruaraka MP TJ Kajwang was nabbed on Wednesday January 1, over the self-‘inauguration’ of Raila Odinga on Tuesday, January 30, at Uhuru Park in Nairobi.
Detaining him in Githunguri is an indirect inciting of tribal animosity. Nairobi has enough police stations and prisons

In the dark Moi days, it was torture at Nyayo Hse, and then arraignment at night, new modus operendi is arrest in Nairobi, arraignment in judicial outposts, after dodging lawyers! Awuoro

CJ we stood with you when you called upon Kenyans of good will to rise and defend their constitution. It’s time you return the favor by condemning such barbaric acts. Stand with the people, for the people by the people. Stand with democracy! It’s about time you said something!
