Miguna Miguna, an embattled attorney, landed in Kenya on Thursday, 20, at about 6:20 am.
Canadian currency At the Jomo Kenyatta International Airport (JKIA), a Kenyan attorney was greeted by his supporters while wearing a blue shirt, a pair of blue jeans, and a black jacket.
“I must offer my gratitude to Kenyans who voted overwhelmingly for the Kenya Kwanza government because that is central for me,” Miguna stated upon landing.
I wouldn’t be back home without this administration, he continued. I thank His Excellency, the President, the Vice President, his administration, and everyone else who has devoted many hours to ensuring the protection of my rights and the rights of all Kenyans.
“What happened to me should not have happened to anyone else,” Miguna said. A citizen born in Kenya cannot be cast aside, forcibly exiled, or deported to another nation.
Miguna Miguna, who was exiled in 2018, had informed his supporters on Twitter that he will return on Mashujaa Day and had made a vow to do so.
With Dr. (Rev.) Frankline Mondo Mugisha at the Dubai International Airport – hours before our departure to Nairobi, Miguna, who moonlights as a politician, blogged last night. I’ll see you on #MashujaaDay. Viva!”
Moreover, Miguna announced that he will travel directly from the airport to the location of President William Ruto’s first Mashujaa Day celebrations in Nairobi’s Uhuru Gardens.
He has also been invited directly to the White House.
“From #MashujaaDay to the JKIA. to @StateHouseKenya after that Patriots are welcome to the JKIA for FREE. Here comes freedom! Cheers.”
Dr. Miguna was charged with treason-related offenses and exiled after his participation in Raila Odinga’s inauguration as the people’s president in 2018. Despite many court orders issued to enable his return, Dr. Miguna’s attempts to return to Kenya were unsuccessful.
Miguna’s acquisition of Kenyan and then Canadian citizenship at a period when Kenya did not support such citizenship was one of the main justifications used by the State for expelling him.
Therefore, the government claimed that even though he traveled to Canada to seek shelter from the harsh Kanu dictatorship led by the late President Daniel Moi, he surrendered his Kenyan citizenship when he acquired the Canadian one.
The then-Deputy President Ruto had vowed that after he won the election, he would lift the red warnings and allow him back, so Dr. Miguna held out hope that one day he would return and support him.
Miguna enthusiastically backed Ruto while insulting Odinga and former president Uhuru Kenyatta.
In addition, he pledged to file a lawsuit against the PS Kibicho and the former Interior CS Dr. Fred Matiang’i, both of whom took part in the decision to deny him entry.
