Kenyan-Canadian lawyer Miguna Miguna says he has booked a flight ahead of his return to Kenya next month.
Through Twitter on Friday, the fiery attorney said he will land at the Jomo Kenyatta International Airport (JKIA) on the morning of November 16th.
Miguna, who was deported to Canada in February 2018 over his role in the swearing-in of ODM leader Raila Odinga as ‘people’s president’, indicated that he used his Kenyan passport to book his flight back home.
“For the avoidance of any doubt, I have used my Kenya Passport to book my flight to Kenya, scheduled to arrive in the morning of November 16, 2021, at the JKIA. Let no one claim that I have used any other passport,” said Miguna.
Retired Chief Justice Willy Mutunga said he will be traveling to Canada next month to accompany Miguna on his flight back home.
“I have taken this extraordinary step for two fundamental reasons. The first is because of the continued, flagrant and reprehensible defiance of the Government of Kenya, its agencies, and senior officials, against the numerous valid court orders in favor of Mr. Miguna,” Mutunga said in a statement.
“The second reason why I have decided to undertake this journey is to support and defend the independence of our judiciary, its authority, and the people’s confidence in it.”
