Controversial exiled lawyer Dr Miguna Miguna has taken a swipe at Siaya Senator James for telling what Miguna claims to be lies during a live TV interview on Sunday night.
Orengo on Sunday evening had a live interview with K24’s Anne Kiguta on a show dubbed punchline.
During the interview, Anne Kiguta asked the senior counsel the reason as to why Raila Odinga-led ODM party had abandoned the exiled lawyer.
Orengo in his response affirmed that the opposition party had not abandoned Miguna Miguna.
The senior counsel said that NASA lawyers went all the way to Court of Appeal over Miguna’s deportation to Canada.
He further insisted that Miguna was not the first Kenyan to go into exile, citing that him alongside Meru governor Kiraitu Murungi, Koigi wa Wamwere and Makau Mutua have been through the same.
“That is not the case. Nasa lawyers went all the way to Court of Appeal. Many of us have been in exile: Kiraitu Murungi, Koigi wa Wamwere, Makau Mutua…. ” he said.
However, Miguna Miguna did not read from the same script as Orengo. He told him to stop peddling lies on a live TV, arguing that Kiraitu Murungi, Raila Odinga, Makau Mutua, Koigi Wamwere and Orengo never had their houses destroyed, holes punched into their passports, never detained without trial, sedated and forced out of Kenya then denied re-entry.
“Mr. @orengo_james: Stop your lies. @makaumutua, Kiraitu Murungi, @RailaOdinga, Koigi Wamwere and you never, ever had your houses destroyed, holes punched into your passports, you were never detained without trial, sedated and FORCED out of Kenya then denied re-entry,” he tweeted.
Miguna was deported after commissioning Raila Odinga’s mockery swearing-in ceremony at Uhuru park.
