Protests erupted in Migori on Tuesday morning as residents demanded that police produce lawyer Miguna Miguna in court.

Angry youth blocked the main road linking the town to Tanzania through Isebania as they demanded to know why Mr Miguna, the self-declared National Resistance Movement 'general' had not been produced in court as ordered.

They lit bonfires at the main bridge linking the two East African countries, paralsying movement of goods and services.

The High Court had ordered the Inspector-General of Police Joseph Boinnet and DCI boss George Kinoti to appear in court in person on Tuesday, alongside Mr Miguna after the state had disobeyed previous orders to release the outspoken politician.

The Migori youths said they want to see Mr Miguna "alive and in sound health".
