The National Commission on Human Rights has written to the Immigration PS Gordon Kihalangwa asking him to facilitate smooth re-entry of lawyer Miguna Miguna to Kenya upon his return from Canada in line with court orders.

The self-styled NRMKe General said he will return to Kenya on May 16.

In a letter dated May 5, KNCHR chairperson Kagwiria Mbogori asked Kihalangwa to comply with the court directive and facilitate Miguna’s entry to Kenya.

This includes issuing him with a valid Kenyan passport, purchasing a flight ticket for him and facilitate the commission’s entry to the Custom’s clearance area at the Jomo Kenyatta Airport.

“We will highly appreciate your feedback by Thursday, May 10. We look forward to your cooperation and support in this regard,” Mbogori said.

Miguna’s re-entry into the country since he was first deported to Canada on February 6 has never been without drama.

The government insists the lawyer who holds both Kenyan and Canadian citizenship is not a Kenyan citizen since he renounced it once he became a Canadian citizen.

Miguna denies ever renouncing his Kenyan citizenship.
