Court documents were later presented at the station calling for the release of the lawmaker but their request was declined.
Tear gas was lobbied in the air to disperse fellow leaders and followers of the MP.
“They have teargassed us ruthlessly and smashed some of our vehicles inside Kilimani Police Station as we tried to have them obey a court order on Hon Moses Kuria’s release.
Members of the press were not spared either. We are African and Africa is our Business.” Said Ndindi Nyoro
In their defense, Kilimani police said the group defied their orders to leave the station thus forcing them to use teargas.
Several leaders took it to social media to express their disappointment led by former Chief Justice Dr. Willy Mutunga.
“What’s happening to Miguna Miguna and Moses Kuria and many other victims of the disobedience of court orders is the inhuman mischief our Constitution sought to cure and heal.
It’s an unacceptable repeat of the inhumanity past and present dictatorships.”
