Miguna's arrest has sparked protests.

Earlier on Tuesday, Inspector general (IG) Joseph Boinnet and Director of Criminal Investigations (DCI) boss George Kinoti sent representatives in court despite a Monday order compelling them to appear in person with Miguna Miguna. "They are also granted an anticipatory bail to stop police from detaining them", ruled Kimaru.

The charge sheet presented by police to a court in Kajiado County, neighbouring Nairobi, said Miguna Miguna was being charged with "being present and consenting to the administration of an oath to commit a capital offence, namely treason".

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.

A Kenyan opposition politician was charged on Tuesday with treason for his involvement in a symbolic presidential "swearing in" of opposition leader Raila Odinga that was a challenge to President Uhuru Kenyatta.

The government ignored court orders to restore transmission for the stations and to release opposition activist Miguna Miguna.

However, high court judge Judge Luka Kimaru has directed the DPP to appear before court this afternoon to confirm whether Miguna has been charged.

Miguna Miguna has refused to take plea in a Kajiado court where he was arraigned to face charges related to the illegal oath taken last month by NASA leader Raila Odinga.
