Self-proclaimed revolutionary intellectual Miguna Miguna is gearing for his return to Kenya following months of forced exile in Canada.
The firebrand lawyer, who was deported to Canada in February 2018 for his role in the mock swearing-in of Raila Odinga as the president, is looking to return next month.
To ensure his return goes as planned, Miguna Miguna has written to the Kenya National Commission on Human Rights (KNCHR) asking them to facilitate his comeback.
“In exercise of my birth and Constitutional rights, I wish to inform you that I intend to travel to Nairobi on a date I will publish a few days before my arrival in April 2019,” reads part of the letter.
“In accordance with your constitutional and statutory mandates, I strongly urge you to take steps to ensure that I will be granted entry into Kenya.”
Miguna is counting on a High Court ruling issued on December 4, 2018 in which Judge Chacha Mwita ruled that the Kenyan-born lawyer has never lost his citizenship as claimed by the State.
Seeing as the ruling has not been overturned, Miguna argues that the State should comply with Justice Mwita’s orders.
He is urging the commission to safeguard him from violation of his rights by Interior CS Fred Matiang’i, outgoing IG Joseph Boinnet, among other government officers.
Miguna also wants KNCHR to liaise with the above named as well as Attorney General Kariuki Kihara and Immigration Principal Secretary Gordon Kihalangwa for the return of his passport upon arrival.
The self-proclaimed National Resistance Movement (NRM) leader has also called on Kenyans urged Kenyans to send him emails to confirm whether they will be part of his journey upon landing at Jomo Kenyatta International Airport (JKIA).
I’m arriving at the #JKIA on a date to be published in April, 2019. All FEARLESS or BRAVE patriots interested in accompanying me on the journey should send emails to email@example.com. Mobilise and come to the #JKIA. Let the revolution begin. #HandshakeAnniversary pic.twitter.com/F0x7cRSsuT
