Deported firebrand lawyer Miguna Miguna has booked a flight ticket ahead of his return to Kenya early next month.
On Saturday, Miguna shared a photo of the air ticket on Twitter and captioned it: “Because Justice delayed is justice denied. Viva!”
The ticket shows that Miguna will land in Nairobi aboard a Lufthansa Flight 590 on January 7th, 2020 at 21:25 hours.
Miguna had earlier announced he would travel to Kenya on January 11th before he changed the date to January 7th due to what he termed as “public demand.”
This will be his second attempt at gaining entry into his motherland after the first attempt in March 2018 hit the rocks. Miguna was first deported in February last year days after his arrest over his role in the mock swearing-in of ODM leader Raila Odinga on January 30th, 2018.
The immigration department later said that Miguna was in Kenya illegally as he renounced his Kenyan citizenship when acquiring a Canadian passport. In March 2018, he attempted to return to Kenya but was removed after spending several hours at JKIA detention facility.
In December 2018, the High Court ruled that Miguna is a Kenyan by birth and holding a Canadian passport does not deny him his birthright. In his ruling, Justice Chacha Mwita declared that the State violated his rights by deporting him and awarded Miguna Sh7.2 million in compensation.
