Self-styled NRM general lawyer Miguna Miguna says he already has a ticket to board a flight back to Kenya after his dramatic deportation to Canada in February.

In an interview with BBC on Friday, he said his March 26 trip back to his homeland is all set up. Miguna is in the UK in what he says is a global mobilisation and recruitment tour.

This comes against the state’s commitment to facilitate his return to the country.

On Friday, his lawyers Nelson Havi and James Orengo met the Kenya Chairperson of Kenya National Commission on Human Rights Kagwiria Mbogori to finalize on his returns.

“Today’s press briefing with the Chairperson of Kenya National Commission on Human Rights after a meeting to finalise the logistics for the return of Miguna Miguna on Monday the 26th March 2016 at 1030am. Work in progress so far is satisfactory,” Orengo tweeted.

Havi said they are banking on government’s word to grant Miguna safety upon his return.

Miguna was on February 6 hounded to a Canada bound flight from Jomo Kenyatta International Airport over his alleged role in the unofficial swearing-in of Raila Odinga on January 30 at Uhuru Park.

He had been in police custody for 5 days before his deportation.

Upon his return to Canada, he vowed to fight the “despotic” Jubilee regime.

“I was forcefully removed from Kenya. That was not a deportation. There was no deportation order. This was an arbitrary, whimsical, dictatorial fiat by a despotic regime,” he said in a statement according to the Star.

Through a team of reputable lawyers, he put up a brave case which saw High Court Judge Chacha Mwita quash the deportation order by the State.

Justice Mwita termed his deportation as null and void.

He directed Immigration boss Major General Rtd. Gordon Kihalangwa to return Miguna’s passport and facilitate his return to the country.

His passport which was deposited with Milimani Law Courts registrar seven days after the ruling was however defaced rendering it unusable.

The Judge ruled that he should be issued a new one and failure to that; he should be allowed to use his Canadian passport during his stay in the country.
