Miguna Miguna is among those who have welcomed IEBC’s decision to declare William Ruto as the president-elect in the general elections that were conducted a week ago.

Through a tweet, Miguna wished him good luck as he advised him on some of the things that his administration should not be linked with. He also praised Ruto’s speech after being declared winner.

“The President-Elect, @WilliamsRuto: Your acceptance speech was magnanimous and statesmanlike. Govern with a focus on the rule of law and principles of constitutionalism. Avoid tribalism, sectionalism, cronyism, nepotism and other forms of maladministration. Good luck. Viva!” Miguna said.

In a separate tweet, the Canadian-based lawyer however said that he was ready to return to Kenya now that the country has a new leader but there are a number of things that must be met first before he takes a flight.

“To all patriots: Relax. Thanks for the solidarity. Yes, I’ve packed my bags and I’m ready. But before I can take my flight back home, William Samoei Ruto must first be sworn in as President, the red alerts lifted and my Kenyan passport renewed. See you soon. Cheers!” Miguna said.

Miguna was deported from the country in February 2018 a month after he oversaw the swearing in of Raila Odinga as the people’s president in January. The government said that he had renounced his citizenship and that he had fraudulently acquired his Kenyan passport in 2009. The government further claimed that he did not consider reapplying for the Kenyan citizenship.

In March the same year, Outgoing head of state Uhuru Kenyatta and Raila decided to set aside their differences in what is known as the famous handshake.

Since then, Miguna’s attempts to return to the country have been facing obstacles and even airlines have declined flying him back.
