Court suspends any criminal proceedings against Miguna Miguna

"If not they'll (the government) be in contempt of court". "The laws are clear".

This was after the IG and DCI violated a Friday court order that gave Miguna a Sh50,000 bond. It was seen as an example of how Kenya's rule of law actually held sway.But previous year also produced a heavy body count ( during the protracted election period and was found murdered), the deputy Supreme Court judge's driver was shot at and injured, and several Supreme Court on postponement of the October polls.

In Nairobi, High Court judge Luka Kimaru ordered that Miguna be released.

He further directed that Mr Miguna appears before him on February 14 to take a plea. He was granted bail of 50,000 Kenyan shillings ($500) but has remained in police custody with his whereabouts unknown until he appeared in court in Kajiado County, neighbouring Nairobi, on Tuesday to hear the charges.

Reports of his deportation come hours after High Court Judge Luka Kimaru barred the Director of Criminal Investigations and the Inspector General of the police from preferring any criminal charges against him.

Overall, "one of the great things about the cancer world right now is that there are more and more survivors", Mehta said. The authors note that there are several overlapping risk factors for CVD and breast cancer, including obesity and smoking.

On Tuesday evening, Nasa supporters who had filled the Milimani courtroom were restless on whether he had been freed after Judge Kimaru ordered for his release.

The leaders, through lawyer Nelson Havi, said they had reliable information that police wanted to arrest and detain them in connection with Raila's swearing-in and feared that they would be detained like Miguna Miguna and TJ Kajwang.

The government was not served with the court order on Thursday afternoon because of a delay at the court registrar's office, Okiya Omtatah, an activist who filed the High Court case and won the lifting of the suspension, told Reuters.

A charge sheet seen by Capital FM News outlines three charges-among them binding Odinga to commit treason, being a member of the outlawed National Resistance Movement and organising an illegal assembly at Uhuru Park where the oath was taken.

As the Court ordered a fresh election for October, President Uhuru Kenyatta, bitterly disappointed by the judges' decision, declared with grace, "I don't agree with the decision, but I respect it".
