Born in Kenya but settled in Canada, Miguna was deported from Nairobi in 2018 in the wake of a fallout following is role in the mock swearing of Raila Odinga as the People’s President.

Dr Matiang’i is the one who signed Miguna’s deportation order and has since been cited in court for contempt in relation to the incident.

His attempts to return to the country on two separate occasions did not bear fruit with Matiang’i accusing him of failing to follow the laws involving Kenyans who possess dual citizenship.

Miguna seems to have found favour with President-Elect William Ruto whom he has consistently supported via his messages on social media.

Ruto has confirmed that he would allow Miguna to return to Kenya when he assumed office.

Saying he would facilitate his coming back within the shortest time possible, Ruto explained, “This is because he’s Kenyan and even if he has committed a crime, our country has laws in place. I don’t see any need for having refugees from other countries while our very own is a refugee in another country.”
