Nasa leaders have started reaping the benefits of the deal between President Uhuru Kenyatta and Nasa chief Raila Odinga.
The security of Nasa Members of Parliament was restored on Monday and their cars returned. It is expected that all Opposition leaders will get their security details today.
Passports that had been confiscated will also be returned immediately and the cases against businessman Jimi Wanjigi and his father Maina withdrawn - the two are facing charges over Jimi's possession of firearms.
The government took tough steps to suppress the National Resistance Movement after Raila had himself sworn-in as the People's President on January 30.
His allies suffered the consequences as some were arrested and others temporarily blocked from leaving the country. Lawyer Miguna Miguna was deported but he is determined to lead the resistance and has opposed Raila's deal with Uhuru.
