Miguna family head to JKIA ahead of homecoming

Miguna Miguna’s older brother has shared the family’s excitement ahead of his homecoming.

In an interview with Citizen TV, Eric Ondiek Miguna, Miguna Miguna’s older brother said, “We were very pleased when he alerted us he is allowed. He had been issued his passport and eventually the red alert placed on him was lifted.”

He confirmed some family members will be traveling to Nairobi to meet the Canadian-based lawyer at the airport on Thursday.

“So many things happened during his absence when he was forced out of the country. We lost so many people. He told us he would like to see those funerals when he comes back.”

He also thanked President William Ruto for facilitating Miguna’s homecoming following his deportation by former President Uhuru Kenyatta’s regime in 2018.

Ondiek said Miguna’s deportation left the family devastated.

“According to his program, he told us once he reaches Nairobi, he will come home straight because he would like to attend some funerals like my wife’s who died while he was there, his father-in law died when he was there, so he will come back home.”

The embattled lawyer is set to jet in Nairobi at 6:00 am on Thursday 20th October. In a post on his Twitter handle, Miguna Miguna said, “Patriots: I’ll be arriving on the KQ Flight at 6AM. Terminal 1. Cheers.”

Earlier, Miguna, who had been in exile since 2018 shared that he would be departing from Toronto on October 24, 2022 then arrive on Tuesday 25th but changed the date saying it was out of public demand.
