Two Kenyan TV stations back on air

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.

The charges presented by the police to a court in Kajiado County against Miguna included taking part in an unlawful assembly and engaging in an organized criminal activity.

When veteran opposition challengerRaila Odinga chose to stage his on January 30, few had any idea that the mood in Nairobi would become one of toxic intolerance - intolerance of the opposition, of the media and of the rule of law.

Four of Kenya's popular TV channels were switched off last week for attempting to broadcast the "inauguration" of opposition leader Raila Odinga as the "people's president".

He was charged with "being present and consenting to the administration of an oath to commit a capital offence, namely treason", the charge sheet read.

Miguna has been in police custody since Friday morning when he was arrested dramatically from his Runda house, which was extensively damaged.




A journalist at the court in Kajiado said Miguna had appeared at Tuesday's hearing.

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

Justice Luke Kimaru has finally released Miguna Miguna and ordered police not to hold him incommunicado any longer. A police spokesman said he was not aware of his detention. County Revenue Supervisor Frank Omondi confirmed the death. A government official, who asked not to be named, confirmed its authenticity.

Odinga's event took place three months after he boycotted a presidential election rerun, claiming the government planned to rig the vote.

Three main private television stations in Kenya were Monday due to resume operations after being shut down by the government for seven days.

He doesn't understand why court orders are not being followed by the Government agencies which needs to protect them and ensure that every citizen is protected and defended by the constitution as the law demands.
