Exiled lawyer Miguna Miguna has ordered Kenyans who subscribe to his resistance ideology to arrest and detain COTU boss Francis Atwoli.
Miguna brags to be the brains behind the National Resistance Movement (NRM) which gained a lot of popularity during the 2017 General elections.
NRM led by Miguna in 2017, in collaboration with NASA called on their supporters to boycott some of the products associated with President Uhuru Kenyatta and his Deputy William Ruto after the repeat Presidential election. They even pushed the hashtag to resist all over social media platforms, #Resist.
Miguna has once again ordered the NRM army to take action against Atwoli. This after Atwoli said in a press conference that if BBI will not be implemented by 2022, the election will be extended.
Atwoli in his presser said that if the Court of Appeal upholds the decision made by the High Court, the whole BBI process will have to start afresh. This will require parliamentarians to extend the elections for even one year.

Atwoli’s sentiments have not gone down well with Miguna who wants him arrested by the power of citizens.
“Patriotic Kenyans and Comrades: I hereby ORDER the PUBLIC ARREST of Francis Atwoli with IMMEDIATE EFFECT. Every patriot is directed to locate and APPREHEND this shameless MERCHANT OF IMPUNITY wherever he is. Let’s get moving! #UhuruMustFall.”
Miguna has gone ahead to tell his army that he will direct where Atwoli should be taken after being arrested.

Atwoli has been among the biggest supporters of BBI which currently is in ICU. He has always insisted that the Bill contains solutions to perennial problems facing this country including election injustices.
But the High Court slammed break on the BBI reggae after declaring the whole process unconstitutional.
President Uhuru Kenyatta, ODM leader Raila Odinga, IEBC, and even the Attorney General have all filed for Appeals looking to overturn the High Court five-judge bench verdict.
The ball is now in The Court of Appeal which will deliver the next ruling.
