Miguna: Ruto has lifted the red alerts
Miguna Miguna has confirmed Kenyan-bound airlines have lifted the red alerts imposed on him, setting the stage for his dramatic return to Nairobi.
The exiled lawyer made the announcement on his socials.
The Government of @WilliamsRuto and @rigathi has LIFTED the Red Alerts despot Uhuru Kenyatta and his GOONS ILLEGALLY imposed against me with the CONNIVANCE of conman @RailaOdinga. My Arrival: October 20 at 6 AM. The Rule of Law, fearlessness, persistence and focus have prevailed.

Also a controversial politician, Miguna was deported by former president Uhuru Kenyatta’s regime in 2018, days after he had participated in the mock swearing-in of Raila Odinga as the people’s president.
The move came after the disputed 2017 general elections in which former president Kenyatta beat Odinga only for the victory to be nullified by the courts.
Odinga refused to participate in the re-run as ordered by the courts arguing that the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commision (IEBC) was unable to administer a free, fair and credible election.
Miguna relocated to Canada and has since transformed into a strong critic of President Uhuru Kenyatta and Raila Odinga whom he consistently blames for his woes.
In between, he morphed into a symnpathiser of President William Ruto.
He has on two separate occasions attempted to return home only to be stopped in his tracks at the airport after airlines refused to allow him, to board, on the basis that the government of Kenya had put red alerts on him.
