By Nyaboga Kiage September 21st, 2022 2 min read

Exiled Kenyan lawyer Dr Miguna Miguna has finally been given a new Kenyan passport.

Miguna said that he had stayed for over 1687 days without the important document which was confiscated from him by Government officials in 2018.

In a statement on his official Twitter account, Dr Miguna updated his loyal followers.

Miguna is currently in exile in Canada after he fell out with the Government of Kenya under the reign of former President Uhuru Kenyatta.

Now all he is waiting for after getting the new passport is for the red alerts to be lifted so he can travel back to Kenya.

“President Dr William Ruto has had a new passport delivered to me. Waiting for the lifting of red alerts,” he said in the post.

Dr Miguna, who is a lawyer by profession had tried to jet into the country ahead of President Dr Ruto’s swearing-in but he never managed to do so.

After President Dr Ruto was sworn in as the head of state on Tuesday, September 13, 2022, the lawyer said that he had a conversation with the Head of State and he assured him that he will ensure the red alerts are lifted.

During the campaign period, President Ruto said that he will ensure Mr Miguna is brought back to the country immediately after he assumes office.

Mr Miguna has also been campaigning for President Dr Ruto asking Kenyans to support his bid for the presidency against a long-time serving opposition leader Mr Raila Odinga who lost in the August 9, 2022, general elections.

He was deported after he took part in a mock swearing-in of Mr Odinga who pronounced himself as the People’s President.

The mock swearing-in ceremony took place at Uhuru Park following a disputed presidential election in which the Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) still lost.

Since then, efforts to get back to the country have been hitting the wall and Interior Principal Secretary Dr Karanja Kibicho denied that it was the government under former President Uhuru Kenyatta that was hindering his travel.
