Controversial lawyer turned politician Miguna Miguna has announced that he’ll be back in the country after September 4 after spending three months in Canada.
In a tweet, Miguna attributed his troubles to President Uhuru Kenyatta and Nasa leader Raila Odinga.
“For the cowards with low self-esteem celebrating the fact that
@UKenyatta and @RailaOdinga destroyed my valid Kenyan passport and my house, abducted, detained and tortured me before forcefully removing me, mark this in permanent ink: I am coming back after September 4th,” tweeted Miguna.
Miguna’s troubles began when he controversially swore in Raila Odinga on January 31 after a hotly contested Presidential election which was nullified by the Supreme Court. Later, a repeat election was held in which the NASA coalition bolted out citing plot by Jubilee and IEBC to rig the polls.
Things turned from bad to worse when Uhuru and Raila reconciled in the famous handshake deal, seemingly leaving Miguna to his own. He was left with a choice to either follow the new unity pact or continue championing the Nasa dream. Miguna chose the latter, which saw him thrown out of the country twice on grounds that he was not a bona fide Kenyan citizen.
Miguna was deported to Canada on May 29 despite a court order directing the government to release him from detention at Jomo Kenyatta airport in Nairobi.
Miguna was taken out of Kenya via a Dubai-bound EK722 flight. Before being deported, Miguna said that he was harassed, drugged and dragged to a Dubai-bound flight. He was later on arrival at Dubai admitted in a Dubai hospital after travelling in an unconscious state to Dubai.
Media reports indicated that the deportation of the self-declared ‘general’ of the National Resistance Movement (NRM), a wing of the Nasa that was formed to champion resistance against products of firms deemed friendly and financiers of Jubilee government, was facilitated by Canada.
For the cowards with low self-esteem celebrating the fact that @UKenyatta and @RailaOdinga destroyed my valid Kenyan passport and my house, abducted, detained and tortured me before forcefully removing me, mark this in PERMANENT INK: I am coming back after September 4th. Viva!
