Controversial lawyer Miguna Miguna on Saturday, July 15, slammed Opposition leader Raila Odinga after he said he is ready for arrest over violent anti-government protests.
Taking to his Twitter account Dr. Miguna criticized Raila for remaining silent when the state allegedly kidnapped and tortured him during the reign of former President Uhuru Kenyatta.
“Why didn’t you say the same thing when I was abducted, detained and tortured but not taken to court by your despotic fake brother, Uhuru Kenyatta?” tweeted Miguna.
Regarding the demonstrations, Miguna castigated the Azimio coalition for failing to adhere to a commitment they signed as presidential candidates before the August 9th General Election.
In addition, he explained that by signing the commitment, all the presidential candidates agreed to accept the elections results.
Similarly, the candidates stated that if they had any grievances regarding those elections, they would channel them through the courts.
“It is time to make Raila Odinga accountable for the commitments he made,” read part of the tweet.
We cannot have a country where only the economically poor and less privileged citizens are accountable, but the big fish operate with impunity!” said Miguna.
