Miguna Miguna could be back in Kenya as early as next Tuesday, September 13, if his request for passage is granted.
The firebrand lawyer has asked the Assumption of the Office of the President Committee to guarantee him safe passage into the country so that he can attend the swearing-in ceremony of President-elect William Ruto.
Through his legal representative Adrian Kamotho Njenga, Miguna Miguna in a letter dated September 7, said the Committee would be violating the Constitution if it didn’t at least consider his plight.
“The Assumption of the Office of President Committee would be acting contrary to the Constitution if it proceeds with its business as usual, without reasonable regard to the plight of our client who has suffered tremendous injustice and indescribable psychological torture at the hands of the departing regime,” the letter reads in part.
“Thus, your Committee has an overarching duty and legal obligation to ensure that our client is facilitated to attend the swearing-in ceremony of the 5th President, His Excellency William Samoei Ruto, without fail.”
Kamotho Njenga reiterated that Miguna is a legitimate Kenyan citizen who is entitled to witness Ruto’s swearing-in.
“Further, may we have your earliest confirmation that all the red alerts and other unlawful restrictions that were ruthlessly imposed on our client have been lifted,” Njenga added in the letter.
“May you also get back to us with a replacement copy of our client’s passport in lieu of the one that was perforated and defaced by the primitive state officials who indiscriminately violated our client’s rights.
Miguna hoped the Committee would respond within 24 hours.
