Kenyan police arrest third MP over Odinga's 'swearing in'

Kenyans shocked as Odinga's ally Miguna is deported to Canada

Kenyatta won a second five-year term in office during the rerun, and he was sworn in as the country's leader in a ceremony last November.

Earlier in the day, protesters took to the streets in Kenya's capital Nairobi to condemn the media shutdown, it said.

In addition to shutting down the television stations, the government briefly detained three opposition politicians who took part in Odinga's symbolic swearing-in ceremony this week.

The three were suspended after trying to live stream an event held by opposition leader Raila Odinga on Tuesday, in which he symbolically inaugurated himself as president in a direct challenge to President Uhuru Kenyatta.

Miguna was arrested on Friday in a dawn raid on his home.

Privately owned Citizen Television reported that Miguna had refused to plead to the charges he faced, saying his case had to be heard before a judge in Nairobi who had issued an order for his present to his court on Tuesday.

A bill requiring all California district attorneys to follow in Gascon's footsteps is being evaluated by California legislators. Brown, who's from the local NAACP chapter, says this will be especially welcome in San Francisco's communities of color.

"Once again the state is willfully violating Mr Miguna's rights by moving him without any notice to his lawyers or his family and, in order to frustrate their access to him, to a court stationed outside Nairobi", Isaac Okero, president of the Law Society of Kenya, told reporters.

Odinga's supporters protested against the charges, blocking roads and clashing with police in the western city of Kisumu, a Reuters witness said.

They had wanted wanted Minority leader, John Mbadi, and other NASA leasers to go to Kajiado and stop addressing the press in Nairobi on Miguna's release. Police used tear gas and fired warning shots to disperse them. A police spokesman said he was not aware of his detention. A government official, who asked not to be named, confirmed its authenticity. The court ordered a fresh election in October that Kenyatta won after Odinga boycotted, claiming a lack of electoral reforms.

Two private Kenyan TV stations are now back on air after being shut down for seven days.

Judge Kimaru on Monday 5 February sent an order to Inspector General of police Joseph Boinnet and the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) to arraign Miguna in court at 2 pm.
