Days after being denied entry into the country from Canada, controversial city lawyer Miguna Miguna has embarked on strategies to have President Uhuru Kenyatta together with his government punished for going against the court orders.
Through his Twitter account, the vocal lawyer, on Tuesday evening, confirmed he had instructed his lawyers to file contempt of court proceedings against President Uhuru Kenyatta’s agents; Interior CS Fred Matiang’i and Attorney General Kihara Kariuki.
Miguna stated that the government should be punished by the courts and forced to withdraw the red alert they issued to different airlines during his anticipated return to Kenya early in January.
“I’ve instructed my lawyers to file contempt proceedings against Despot Uhuru Kenyatta’s agents like @FredMatiangiand Kihara Kariuki who issued the illegal read alerts. They must be punished and forced to withdraw them. I want to join Kenyans in arresting the despots and conmen.
Miguna was forced to return back to Canada a week ago after spending several days in Berlin Germany following his failed attempt to get into the country.
The lawyer had arrived in Berlin on January 5 ready to fly to Kenya the following day but the red alert issued by the government barring him from flying to Kenya or any other African country forced him to spend some more days in Germany.
Miguna said on his twitter handle that he had “no option other than returning to exile” having been stranded in Berlin for the last two weeks after the Kenya government blocked him from flying back to the country of birth following his deportation two years ago.
Miguna’s efforts to have the courts hold Kenyan government responsible comes at a time when the Attorney General Kihara Kariuki has asked the court to consider the immigration law on the re-entry of Kenyan citizens into the country.
In his advisory opinion regarding the matter, the Attorney General remarked that the court should come out clearly on the factual circumstances on compliance and intervening facts which might complicate the compliance.
Justice John Mativo on January 13, requested the AG in his capacity as a friend of the court to give his opinion on why the State had failed to obey the court orders allowing Miguna’s return to Kenya.
The courts had in 2018, 2019 instructed the Kenyan government to allow Miguna back into the country without any restrictions since he was a Kenyan.
You will win, they will lose, but the again ata ukiwin hizi the state doesn't care. Wikuma mana susu!
