Lawyer Miguna Miguna has confirmed that he will come back to Kenya on November 16, on his tweet seen by trendstv.co.ke Miguna said he has booked a flight from Toronto, Canada to Nairobi.
“For the avoidance of any doubt, I have used my Kenya Passport that Despot Uhuru Kenyatta perforated in February 2018 to book my flight to Kenya, scheduled to arrive in the morning of November 16, 2021, at the JKIA. Let no one claim that I have used any other passport,” Miguna’s tweet on Friday.
He was deported in February 2018 after swearing-in ODM leader Raila Odinga as the ‘People’s President’ at Uhuru Park on January 30, 2018.
On 26 March 2018, Miguna attempted to return to the country but was denied entry at Jomo Kenyatta International Airport by government officials and detained by authorities for three days, before he was deported to Dubai, a process the lawyer claims he doesn’t remember since he was sedated.
Former Chief Justice Willy Mutunga vowed to fly to Toronto next month and accompany the exiled lawyer on his journey back to the country.
“I am also seeking out Kenyan journalists who will accompany me on this historic journey. I have taken this extraordinary step for two fundamental reasons. The first is because of the continued, flagrant and reprehensible defiance of the Government of Kenya, its agencies, and senior officials, against the numerous valid court orders in favor of Mr. Miguna.,” Willy Mutunga’s statement.
“The second reason why I have decided to undertake this journey is to support and defend the independence of our judiciary, its authority, and the people’s confidence in it. Roll call of gross injustices, impunity, and subversion of the constitution and the rule of law,” he added.
