    The High Court has dismissed an application by lawyer Miguna Miguna to have red alerts imposed against him by the government lifted.

    According to Judge Hedwig Ong’udi, there was no evidence showing that Miguna had been barred from returning to the country.

    Miguna, who is set to return to the country on Tuesday, November 16, accused the government of issuing red alerts thus blocking his return.

    Miguna said the alerts had prevented Lufthansa and Air France airlines from allowing him to board its planes for purposes of travelling to and entering Kenya on November 16 or any other day.

    “It is lawful and just that the red alerts issued by the Attorney General and Fred Matiang’i to the two airlines or any other airline be lifted to enable me travel to Kenya,” he said.

    Miguna was deported to Canada over claims of treason and that he had denounced his Kenyan citizenship.

    The controversial lawyer was exiled after swearing in of ODM leader Raila Odinga as the people’s president in 2018.

    He recently urged Kenyans to stop living like visitors in their country and exercise their freedoms following requests from Kenyans who sought permission to welcome him at the Jomo Kenyatta International Airport.

    “I have received large volumes of messages requesting permission to welcome me to Kenya. No one needs permission from me, or from anyone else, to go to the JKIA, or anywhere else,” Miguna said in a tweet.
