Why Miguna has cancelled his return home

Controversial lawyer Miguna Miguna has cancelled his return home.

The fiery lawyer cited the refusal of the Immigration Department to grant him a Kenyan passport as ordered by High Court.

Here is an excerpt of his press statement released on Wednesday midday.

“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.”

The court  is expected to give any further directions on the subject of his return on Friday, which directions could inform Mr Miguna’s return.

This is according to Kenya National Commission on Human Rights (KNCHR) vice chairperson George Morara.

KNCHR has been working with Mr Miguna’s lawyers to secure Mr Miguna’s return as had been ordered by the courts.
