Gov’t Issues Contradicting Statement on Miguna’s Return

The Government has refuted claims that lawyer Miguna Miguna has been denied entry into the country.
According to Mwenda Njoka, spokesman for the Ministry of Interior and Coordination of National Government, said that Miguna declined to present the passport that he travelled with to immigration authorities.

“GoK has not denied Miguna Miguna entry into the country. Upon arrival at JKIA he was asked to present the passport he travelled in. He declined. It is a legal requirement & IATA regulation for travellers to show the documents they travelled in at the point of entry,” Njoka posted on Twitter.

Reports indicated that the fiery lawyer forced his way past JKIA’s immigration clearance area after a heated argument but was barred at the luggage area.

In a statement later,Acting Director of Immigration Services Joseph Munywoki said Miguna Miguna was asked to present his documents to facilitate his entry, but he became uncontrollable only giving his National Identity card.

The statement said that Miguna also refused to produce the documents even at the request of his lawyers and Kenya National Human Rights Commission (KNHRC) officials who were there to witness his return.

Miguna arrived at JKIA, Nairobi, after a six-week stay in Canada where he had been deported to.
The fierce Sate critic was deported to Canada after his dramatic arrest for his role in the January 30 controversial Raila Odinga’s ‘swearing-in’ as the people’s president.
However, his return now further throws into the spin his relationship with Raila, as he criticised his truce deal with President Uhuru Kenyatta.
According to Miguna, the reconciliatory meeting was meant to turn Kenya into an authoritarian rule as it only served the few elites at the expense of many suffering Kenyans.
