Details have emerged, revealing that NASA coalition leader Raila Odinga was shoved at the Jomo Kenyatta International Airport (JKIA) on Monday night during standoff upon arrival of self-proclaimed NRM general Miguna Miguna .

Odinga had arrived at the airport to secure the release of Miguna Miguna who had been detained at the airport after failing to avail his passport to the immigration officers.

The socio-political commentator had arrived from Canada following a court order, where he had been deported a month ago by the Kenyan government.

Miguna told businessman Jimi Wanjigi, Odinga’s close confidant, that he, alongside Odinga, James Orengo among others, were under custody and that an officer pushed the ODM party leader and former prime minister.

“We are all here in custody. Including His Excellency Raila Odinga. In fact Raila was pushed by that gentleman. The security officer pushed Raila Odinga,” Miguna told Wanjigi who had been locked out of where Miguna, Odinga and Orengo were.

In a video taken by KTN News(watch below 4 Minutes into the video) Mr Odinga and an officer are seen engaged in a push and pull tussle as the former Prime minister tries to get the officer unlock the door where Miguna and other leaders were held;

Wanjigi ,who also caused a scene after he demanded to be arrested together with Miguna Miguna and other NASA leaders, asked Miguna to take note of the identification number of the officer in question.

“They pushed Baba (Raila)? Who pushed Raila? Take the identification number of the officer I want to put it in media,” Wanjigi told Miguna, as they briefly conversed through a glass door.

Miguna was later on bundled into an Emirates Flight EK722 to Dubai, back to Canada but refused to board it as he shouted in protest.

“I’m not going! I’m not going! I’m not boarding! I’m not boarding because I don’t have a passport! The captain cannot fly! You cannot take me away from my own country! Kill me I’m not afraid of your gun! I’m not going to Dubai,” protested Miguna, at around 11pm.

The flight eventually left without Miguna on board.
