Spending a night in custody for someone who hasn’t before can be the toughest experience in his or her entire life. Remember the recent top Kenyan officials that were referred to as the “Pangani 6”? After they were released from custody, the aspect of hate speech has gone down in a good way.
Police captured Mr Munir at the Jomo Kenyatta International Air terminal in Nairobi on Thursday night. He spent the night at Kileleshwa Police headquarters cells as his companions attempted to have him discharged futile.
On Friday, he was confined at the Milimani Law Courts storm cellar cells for over three hours.
Nonetheless, he was not charged in court as the matter was taken care of authoritatively. Munir will now anticipate further course by the Director of Public Prosecution on the matter. Senior Counsel and Lawyer Mr. Paul Muite protected Munir saying he was going on occasion and was not fleeing as asserted by police.
Police who captured him said they had been informed that the former National Bank CEO was escaping the nation and would not return but rather he let them know he was traveling to Dubai to visit his family.
Munir said police had given back his passport and asked why they captured him at the air terminal. This is what Senior lawyer Mr. Paul Muite said, “The manner in which my client was handled is not proper. A passport can only be impounded by a court of law but that was not the case,”.
