Today, 10th October, is Moi Day, and Lawyer Miguna Miguna remembered his predicament in the hands of the former President Daniel Toroitich Arap Moi’s goons.

‘On November 14, 1987 at 3 a.m. in the morning, Moi sent armed goons to my room at Hall 6 University of Nairobi residence to abduct me. He did the same to 5 other student leaders. He DETAINED and TORTURED us at the Nyayo House Torture Chambers for 14 days’, Miguna posted on Twitter.

In the past before the promulgation of the constitution in August 2010, Moi Day was a public holiday that was celebrated with pomp and color and wastage of public resources.
