Nasa MPs are expected to file contempt of court suit against the government on Monday as it claimed that leaders aligned to the coalition are being targeted and persecuted unfairly and without provocation.
This comes as the government was put on the spot over its failures to release lawyer Miguna Miguna, who was being held at Lari police station in Kiambu as well as restore the normal transmission of three major private TV stations in the country despite court orders.
Kakamega Senator Cleophas Malala disclosed to the Nation on Sunday that a team of lawyers led by Siaya Senator James Orengo and Rarieda MP Otiende Amollo among others, is working on a petition to be filed in court on Monday.
"We want the Jubilee administration to tell the court why it is not respecting court orders. It is a wrong move to arrest people arbitrarily, hold them incommunicado at undisclosed locations in this time of the new Constitution," Mr Malala said.
On January 30, the Communications Authority of Kenya (CA) disabled the transmission signals of NTV, KTN News and Citizen TV for covering the "swearing-in" of Nasa principal Raila Odinga as the people's president.
