KENYA GOVERNMENT ARRESTS ANOTHER ODINGA ALLY.

Published

on

Government in Kenya has arrested Miguna Miguna, the other legislator that actively participated in the illegal ‘swearing in’ ceremony of opposition leader Raila Odinga.

The self-styled National Resistance Movement (NRM) General Miguna Miguna was arrested on Friday morning, shortly after he raised the alarm on a police raid at his home.

The National Resistance Movement is the resistance wing of the opposition National Super Alliance Coalition (NASA).

The Director of Criminal Investigations George Kinoti confirmed that he was arrested for administering an illegal oath and being a member of NRM, an organisational that has been declared ‘criminal’.

“He publicly declared that he is the general of NRM, which is already declared a proscribed group. By the time he declared publicly, there was a gazette notice by the minister. How can we let it go? We are law enforcers,” said Kinoti.

Kinoti added that Miguna told ‘people to burn portraits of a democratically elected president’ and also confessed that he is the one who administered the oath.

Miguna’s arrest follows the detention and subsequent release by court on bail, of fellow lawmaker TJ Kanjwang, who also flanked Odinga at the inauguration.

Miguna had earlier alerted a local news editor that police had stormed his home in the early morning and ransacked it.

“The police have bombed their way into my house. I can’t speak on the phone right now. They have ransacked the house!!” he said.

Meanwhile, the African Union Commission (AUC) has issued a statement saying it is ready to help defuse the situation in Kenya.

In the statement, the AUC says it ‘rejects all actions that undermine constitutional order and the rule of law’.

PM Abiy reiterates Ethiopia’s decision over latest clampdown.

Published

on

Ethiopian Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed has finally spoken on ongoing anti-corruption and rights abuse clampdown stating that there was not going to be any backing down let alone retreat.

A statement from the Abiy’s office issued in Amharic tasked citizens to rally behind the development as a means of ridding the country of lawlessness and criminal elements.

State-affiliated FBC reported that the statement titled, ‘Let’s Fight (the) Cancer,’ said the government was bent on bringing people behind injustices to book.



The statement said the underlying objective of recent arrests was to get rid of Ethiopia criminals. “… criminals do not care about ethnicity, country, or morality; they only care for themselves.

“The key to justice is to create a system for innocent citizens to live in freedom and dignity while criminals are held accountable and punished in accordance with the law,” the statement read in part.

New Zealand denies refusing refugees with holiday visas entry.

Published

on

New Zealand’s Prime Minister, Jacinda Ardern, on Friday, rejected allegations that the country’s government was blocking refugees who wished to travel into the country from Nauru on visitor visas.

Nauru’s president, Baron Waqa, also claimed in an interview with Australian media that he had also personally brokered a deal for New Zealand to accept 80 refugees currently located on the island.



“It’s incorrect to say that there is some kind of agreement for 80 specific individuals to take residence or visit,’’ Ardern told media at the East Asia Summit in Singapore.

“The request did not ask about whether refugees could visit New Zealand on holiday visas,’’ he added.

The country assessed all applications for visitor visas on a case-by-case basis. This applies regardless of a person’s country of origin or nationality.

The country is under pressure to transfer the remaining 30 children from the island.
