Controversial lawyer Miguna Miguna is all set to return home after being deported to Canada in February 2018.

Miguna announced through a tweet that he has booked his flight from Toronto, Canada to Nairobi, Kenya by using his Kenyan passport.

The lawyer cum activist is expected in the country on the morning of November 16, 2021.

“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 wrote.

Miguna was first deported in January 2018 after the swearing in of ODM leader Raila Odinga as the People’s president. The authorities confiscated his Kenyan passport at that time.

His attempt to return to the country in March the same year was blocked. It is alleged that he was detained for three days on entry to Jomo Kenyatta International Airport.

Miguna was later deported to Dubai, events that he does not remember because he claims that he was sedated.

All this happened even though the court had issued an order to stop the government from forcefully removing Miguna from the country.

Former Chief Justice Willy Mutunga announced that he will personally fly to Toronto to bring Miguna 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 favour of Mr Miguna,” Mutunga said in a 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.

Recently, Mutunga challenged the judges to go on strike to protest over the government’s trend of ignoring court orders.
