Kenya TV Stations Resume Operations

When veteran opposition challengerRaila Odinga chose to stage his on January 30, few had any idea that the mood in Nairobi would become one of toxic intolerance - intolerance of the opposition, of the media and of the rule of law.

Demonstrators took to the streets in the west, the heartland of support for Odinga, who maintains he was the victor of an election that returned President Uhuru Kenyatta to power previous year.

Around 100 people were killed during the protracted election season, a lot of them Odinga supporters shot by the police.

Miguna was detained in a dawn raid on his Nairobi home on Friday after that of another opposition leader a day earlier.

Kenyatta won the August election, and won the repeat election in October as well after Odinga boycotted it, complaining it would not be fair.

Justice Luke Kimaru has finally released Miguna Miguna and ordered police not to hold him incommunicado any longer.
