NASA supporters demand release of ‘ailing’ Miguna Miguna
- NASA supporters have demanded for the release of controversial former Nairobi Gubernatorial aspirant Miguna Miguna, even as he spends his third day behind bars.
- Supporters of the opposition coalition and the self-styled NRM General have intensified their demands through the Twitter hashtag #FreeMigunaMigunaNow.
- Although not yet officially confirmed, Miguna is also said to have suffered an asthma attack while behind bars and that the officers holding him refuse to allow for him to be attended to by medical personnel.
NASA supporters have demanded the immediate release of political firebrand and lawyer Miguna Miguna, who has been in police custody since Friday, February 2 when police raided his home and took him away.
Supporters of the opposition coalition have intensified their demands through the Twitter hashtag #FreeMigunaMigunaNow for the better part of Sunday.
Although not yet officially confirmed, Miguna, the self-proclaimed leader of NASA’s National Resistance Movement, is also said to have suffered an asthma attack while behind bars and that the officers holding him refused to allow for him to be attended to by medical personnel.
Taking to Twitter to respond to these claims, former Nairobi Senator aspirant and Miguna’s lawyer Edwin Sifuna said: “It’s true. We received info that Miguna has suffered an Asthma attack. I have with me an inhaler but the OCS has become hostile. He wont let me see my client to give him the medication.”
Dr. Miguna Miguna is critically ill at Lari. The police there have received orders from above NOT to attend to him nor allow his lawyer and doctor to access him. They want him to die. They are killing him. This is an ASSASSINATION.#FreeMigunaMigunaNow

NASA CEO Norman Magaya further added: “Miguna Miguna is critically ill but the OCS can’t allow a doctor or even see a lawyer.”

Miguna Miguna was arrested after police raided and ransacked his Runda home. In a text seen by Citizen Digital, Miguna claimed: “They have arrested me. They have bombed my house and broke everything. They are still here. They are searching all rooms. It is an assassination squad. I can’t speak. They are still here looking for me. We need our youth here in numbers. My house is number 486 Runda Meadows. It is urgent and dire.”
A group of irate youth blocked the Lang’ata bypass following the arrest.
Miguna Miguna, through lawyer Nelson Havi, moved to court under a certificate of urgency seeking court orders to have police release him on bail.
Despite High Court Judge James Wakiaga ordering the release of Miguna Miguna on a Ksh.50, 000 cash bail, police defied the order.
#FreeMigunaMigunaNow an illegitimate government breaking every bit of law. Disobeying court orders, struggling to ascertain it's legitimacy has no shame on wanting to keep oppressing it's opponents. Miguna Miguna must be freed now

When a State ominously and blatantly disobeys lawful Court orders, then the ground for lawlessness and anarchy is adequately prepared. #FreeMigunaMigunaNow
