Lawyer Miguna Miguna has faulted Deputy President William Ruto for slamming public officers accused of disregarding court orders.
Speaking on Sunday, DP Ruto warned public officers disobeying court orders that they would be held personally responsible for their actions.
“This country is built on a firm foundation of the rule of law and as such, every citizen, including all public officers, must respect it...those disobeying will carry their own cross,” Ruto, who spoke in Narok, said.
Responding to Ruto through Twitter on Monday, Miguna asked the Deputy President to address President Kenyatta directly on the matter instead of blaming his juniors. Miguna has been accusing the government of disobeying court orders requiring it to facilitate his return to Kenya following his deportation to Canada in 2018.
“To William Ruto: Make a decision whether you support the Rule of Law and the Obedience of all Court Orders or you don’t. Stop blaming CJ David Maraga. Maraga does not head the @PoliceKE. The person DISOBEYING Court Orders is your “boss” Despot Uhuru Kenyatta. Address him DIRECTLY,” Miguna wrote.
Ruto made the remarks after Gatundu South MP Moses Kuria was detained at Kilimani Police station for over 24 hours despite court orders to release him. Kuria, an ally of Ruto, had been arrested on Friday morning over allegations of assaulting a woman.
Miguna, who was set to arrive in the country last Tuesday, is stuck in Germany after airlines refused to fly him to Nairobi over a red alter issued by the government of Kenya. The alert allegedly warned the airlines against flying Miguna to Kenya or any other African nation.
