Ruto: I will bring back Miguna

Deputy President William Ruto has vowed to bring back lawyer Miguna Miguna  if elected President.

A fiery lawyer and controversial politician, Miguna was deported to Canada by President Kenyatta’s regime in 2018, moments after he was arrested presumably for his role in the swearing in of Raila Odinga’s as the people’s president.

Commenting on the matter during an interview with the Voice of America during his recent tour of the US, Ruto argued he sees no point in exiling the lawyer.

“We will allow him back because he is a Kenyan he has not done anything illegal. If he broke the law he will be brought back to the country where there is law that will deal with him, I do not see the reason that we have refugees in the country and there is one of our own who has been denied access to the country,” explained Ruto.

Odinga has in the past also vowed to ensure Miguna returns home if elected president.

“Nobody fears Miguna Miguna, he is not a threat. Nobody has a problem with Miguna, we will let him come and make his noise in the country,” Raila stated.

Miguna has been denied entry to Kenya on three several occasions and has since responded by consistently verbally attacking President Kenyatta and Raila Odinga on his social media pages.

Miguna recently announced his intent to vie for the Nairobi gubernatorial seat in the August 2022 polls.
