Kenya/Canada: Miguna files new petition for return trip to Kenya

May 18, 2018

Miguna files new petition for return trip to Kenya

Embattled lawyer Miguna Miguna has filed a fresh case seeking court orders to grant him unconditional entry into Kenya.

This come barely a day after he cancelled his trip back to the country.

In the application, Miguna wants the court to direct that his perforated passport be released to the Kenya National Commission Human Rights(KNCHR).

Through his lawyer John Khaminwa, Miguna said the human rights agency will then present it to Immigration on the day he decides to return.

The fiery lawyer is accusing the Kenyan Government, Interior CS Fred Matiang’i and Immigration Department of not obeying court orders.

According to him, he has been denied his right to appear in court and present his evidence.

“The Government is deliberately seeking and acting to impede and obstruct the ability of the court to administer justice effectively or at all to hear and determine the petition expeditiously,” reads the petition that was filed at the Milimani Law Court.

According to the court documents, KNHCR wrote to Maj. Gordon Kihalangwa on May 5, giving notice of Miguna’s intended return on May 16.

In the notice, the organization asked the government to comply with the previous court orders to issue Miguna with a valid passport and purchase a flight ticket for the lawyer from Toronto to Nairobi

Kenya/Canada: I’m not returning today, go on hunger strike, Miguna tells patriots

Firebrand lawyer Miguna Miguna has postponed his trip back to Kenya citing states’ failure to issue him with a valid passport.

“I was determined to arrive home on schedule, however, just before my departure, I reluctantly cancelled my flight to Nairobi and postponed my next arrival date,” he said.

Miguna said he has instructed his lawyers to move to court with a view of challenging the Department of Immigration refusal to issue him with a valid Kenyan passport.

“We will provide you with my new arrival date as soon as the court gives further directions on this matter,” he said in a statement.

Miguna further asked NRMKe patriots to engage in peaceful protests “against the illegitimate regime’s continued violation of his rights and those of millions of Kenyans”.

“Hold processions, sit-ins, street protests, hunger strikes, and use all media at your disposals against the escalating tyranny and the culture of impunity,” he said.

The self-declared NRMKe leader claimed that NASA is dead and with ODM having essentially joined Jubilee, the NRMKe is the new Kenyan opposition.

“We will and must march on until we defeat those trying to institutionalise the culture of impunity. We must establish a merit based democratic society,” he said.

PRESS RELEASE
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE!
Wednesday, May 16, 2018.

In view of the refusal by the Department of Immigration to issue me with a valid Kenyan passport and facilitate my unconditional re-entry into Kenya as ordered by the High Court and formally requested by the Kenya National Commission for Human Rights on my behalf, and on advice from legal counsel, I have instructed my advocates to immediately bring to the attention of the court the continued willful contempt of its orders.

I was determined to arrive home on schedule, however, just before my departure, I reluctantly cancelled my flight to Nairobi and postponed my next arrival date.

We will provide you with my new arrival date as soon as the court gives further directions on this matter.

Meanwhile, I urge all Kenyan patriots and members of the National Revolutionary Movement of Kenya (NRMKe) to engage in peaceful protests against the illegitimate regime’s continued violation of my rights and the rights of millions of Kenyans, its continued refusal to obey court orders, its looting of hundreds of billions of public resources and failure to adhere to and respect the constitution.

Hold processions, sit ins, street protests, hunger strikes and use all media at your disposals against the escalating tyranny and the culture of impunity.

NASA is dead and with ODM having essentially joined Jubilee, the NRMKe is the new Kenyan opposition. We will and must march on until we defeat those trying to institutionalize the culture of impunity. We must establish a merit based democratic society.

Viva!

Kenya/Canada: Miguna expected back from Canada on Wednesday

May 16, 2018

Miguna Miguna

Lawyers representing self-declared NRM general Miguna Miguna could be heading to court on Wednesday, the same day he is expected to arrive from Canada.

The decision to go to court follows a letter by the Principal Secretary in the State Department of Immigration, Mr Gordon Kihalangwa, to the Kenya National Commission on Human Rights (KNCHR) that the department would neither issue Mr Miguna with a passport nor buy him an air  ticket as ordered by the court.

 

“We have been talking with the lawyers (for Mr Miguna) and we understand they are going to court on Thursday on the basis of Kihalangwa’s letter, which, in effect, says the government is still not keen on letting him back. So they will be asking for fresh directions and orders from the court,” KNCHR Vice-Chairman George Morara said.

DEPORTEDTWICE

 

Mr Miguna announced that he will be returning on Wednesday from Canada after the government deported him twice.

“May 16, 2018, my return date to my motherland is now engraved on granite. Thanks patriots, #NRMKe comrades, colleagues like Stuart Russell, for keeping the flame alive. We shall triumph,” he tweeted.

 

Mr Miguna has claimed that during his latest deportation on March 29, government officials “brutalised, tortured, sedated and forced” him into exile.

On the eve of his expected return, a lot of things including his itinerary still remained unclear.

 

“We are not getting any leads on the matter. Of course we are still keen on obeying the court orders and we will be writing to KAA for the facilitation like we did the other time,” said Mr Morara.

Kenya/Canada: Fresh Drama Looms at JKIA as Miguna Miguna Returns to Kenya Next Week

May 13, 2018

Fresh Drama Looms at JKIA as Miguna Miguna Returns to Kenya Next Week

A fresh showdown between deported lawyer Miguna Miguna and State authorities looms at the Jomo Kenyatta International Airport (JKIA) when the former returns to the country on Wednesday.

Miguna announced he will return to the country from Canada on Wednesday, May 16th after he was kicked out of the country for the second time on March 28th.

“May 16, 2018, my return date to my motherland is now engraved on granite. Thanks patriots, #NRMKe comrades, colleagues like Stuart Russell, for keeping the flame alive. We shall triumph,” the lawyer tweeted on May 5th.

Last week, the Kenya National Commission on Human Rights (KNCHR) wrote to Immigration Principal Secretary Gordon Kihalang’wa asking him to issue Miguna with a passport and purchase an air ticket for his return.

However, responding to KNCHR letter, Kihalang’wa has informed the Commission that the department will undertake none of the demands. This signals to a possible confrontation between Miguna and Immigration officials when he lands at JKIA next week.

“The department cannot issue Mr Miguna with a valid Kenyan passport as he has not made any application for the same. Moreover, and without prejudice, we reiterate that Mr Miguna has to regain his Kenyan citizenship before being issued with a Kenyan passport,” Maj-Gen Kihalang’wa says in the letter dated May 10th.

Kenya/Canada: NASA’s self proclaimed general Miguna Miguna plans his second coming

May 11, 2018

Image result for miguna miguna

It appears the stage is set for yet another showdown between outspoken advocate Miguna Miguna and the government, as he plans to make a second coming attempt. The department of immigration has failed to respond to a letter from the Kenya national commission on human rights, which is demanding that the government adheres to three court orders facilitating Miguna’s entry. KTN’s Duncan Khaemba has also found out that high court advocate Nelson Havi has withdrawn from Miguna’s legal team.

Kenya/Canada: No drama; KNCHR writes to Kihalangwa, wants facilitation of Miguna’s smooth return

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.

Read: I’ll be back on May 16, Miguna says

“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.

Kenya/Canada: I’ll be back on May 16, Miguna says

May 5, 2018

Self-proclaimed NRM general Miguna Miguna has said he will return to the country on May 16.

This will be his second attempt to return to the country after his second deportation in March.

In a tweet on Saturday, the controversial lawyer revealed that he will land at the Jomo Kenyatta International Airport (JKIA) on May 16.

“I AM RETURNING TO KENYA ON MAY 16, 2018. I am a Kenyan citizen by birth. The High Court has ordered Fred Matiangi, GKihalangwa, JBoinnet and Kinoti 13 times to issue me with a valid Kenyan passport and facilitate my return to Kenya as a Kenyan unconditionally,”read the tweet.

On March 30, Miguna’s return was thwarted by the Immigration Department after he refused to present his travel documents for clearance at JKIA.

Read:Why Miguna Miguna was deported a second time

Miguna’s troubles began after his participation in the swearing-in of opposition Chief Raila Odinga as the people’s president at Uhuru Park on January 30, 2018.

In his botched return, the outspoken NRM leader Miguna claimed in several posts that he was drugged and shipped to Dubai unconscious.

“I woke up in Dubai and the despots are here insisting that I must travel on to London. I’m sick. My ribs and body are hurting all over. This is a travesty of justice,” he wrote on his Facebook page.
