“Raila Odinga as an institution, is a no-go zone for him to spew vitriol. He and Raila don’t play in the same league. As far as we’re concerned, the moment he starts showing open disrespect for Raila, he crosses the red line,” ODM political affairs director Opiyo Wandayi was quoted by the Sunday Nation.

“I urge the concerned State officials to facilitate his return to the country as soon as possible so that he can resume his normal life without unnecessary drama.”The Ugunja MP added.

ODM Secretary-General Edwin Sifuna added that Mr Miguna was enjoying legal representation courtesy of a bid by Mr Odinga.

The legal team comprising Senior Counsel James Orengo, Dr John Khaminwa, Mr Nelson Havi, Ms Julie Soweto and Mr Cliff Ombeta have at one point been brutalised by police while pursuing the government to produce Mr Miguna in court hours before he was deported.

“We have documented all the efforts Jakom (Mr Odinga) has put in to help Miguna. Mzee has instructed all his lawyers including myself to work on the case at great peril. The team led by Orengo has been on this matter since the lawyer was arrested in February,” Mr Sifuna said.

“We have suffered brutality both from police and State sympathisers. Our passports have been revoked. Mzee has personally been coming to court. He was at the airport risking his own safety. I therefore don’t see how anyone can say that he has abandoned Miguna,” he added.
