Kenya/Canada: Bring back Miguna Miguna, Court orders the government

February 15, 2018

Opposition politician Miguna Miguna is free to return to Kenya after the High Court quashed Government decision to strip him of his citizenship.

As soon as the judgement was delivered, Miguna stated he would soon be back to face his tormentors.

But the Government maintained it followed the right procedure in deporting him and would appeal the decision.

In his hard-hitting judgement that sent a warning to State officials disobeying court orders, Justice Luka Kimaru ruled the decision to declare Miguna a non-Kenyan citizen and his subsequent deportation was null and void.

“The declaration by Interior CS Fred Matiang’i based on the advice of Director of Immigration Gordon Kihalangwa that Miguna is not a Kenyan citizen and that his presence in the country is against national interest is null, void and of no legal consequence,” he ruled.

The judge ordered the Government to restore Miguna’s status as a Kenyan. The lawyer was stripped of the right on February 6 just before he was deported to Canada.
