Miguna moves to court to reclaim Kenyan citizenship

Self-proclaimed NRM ‘general’ Miguna Miguna has moved to court seeking reinstatement of his Kenyan citizenship.

On Monday, his lawyer Nelson Havi filed the suit and swore an affidavit on his behalf.

Havi told the court to compel the Immigration department to reinstate Miguna’s passport and allow him back to his motherland.

The fiery lawyer was dramatically deported to Canada last week on Tuesday in a KLM Amsterdam bound flight.

“The despots have put me in a fight to Amsterdam en route to Toronto, departure time right now, Instead of taking me to court as ordered repeatedly by the courts, they seized my passports and drove me to the runaway at the JKIA,” he wrote before leaving JKIA.

He arrived at the Toronto International Airport in Canada Thursday morning where he vowed to fight the “despots” who deported him.

Miguna argued that his citizenship cannot be revoked since he is a Kenyan by birth.

But the Immigration department headed by director Gordon Kihalangwa said Miguna is a Canadian and not a Kenyan.

In a sworn affidavit to the High Court last Friday, Kihalangwa said the lawyer fled Kenya as a political refugee back in 1988 without a passport.

Fast forward to the times of the Grand coalition government when Miguna served as Raila Odinga adviser, the immigration boss said Miguna was irregularly issued a Kenyan passport.
