The state maintains that they will not issue the self-styled general Dr. Miguna Miguna with a Kenyan passport unless he re-applies for a new one. This comes after several court orders were issued to guarantee Miguna safe entry to his country of birth.
In an interview with a local radio station, the immigration department maintains the case is still in court and could not speak about it.
“I cannot tell what will happen on Miguna’s arrival since the matter is still in court, I cannot comment about it,” retorted Kihalangwa when asked on Hot 96 breakfast show.
Earlier on, the Kenya National Human Rights Commission reported that the state was not willing to issue the former Nairobi gubernatorial candidate with a passport since he had renounced his citizenship.
“The identity card Miguna Miguna holds is a fake document and is therefore void,” read part of the statement.
Miguna Miguna had issued his identification documents for processing but failed to give the passport(Canadian) he used to travel before his deportation in March. He is purportedly charged for participating in an ‘oathing ceremony’ of former premier Raila Odinga as the People’s President.
However, the human rights watch dog argues that the self-proclaimed general should be given safe re-entry as the court had ordered. Miguna is set to arrive today and has since instructed his lawyers to take plea in court however, the KNHCR believes otherwise.
