Lawyer Miguna Miguna insists the government must obey a court order to issue him with an emergency travel document.
In a letter to Miguna’s attorney Nelson Havi, Solicitor General Kennedy Ogeto said Kenyan immigration officials in Canada and Germany have been directed to furnish the fiery political activist with a travel certificate once he fills the requisite forms.
But through Twitter on Tuesday, Miguna accused the government of trying to lure him into completing forms in order to regain his citizenship, which he maintains he never lost.
“What Fred Matiang’i and Karanja Kibicho, Ken Ogeto, and Co. want me to do is “fill forms to regain citizenship,” which I never lost. Those shouting about “fill forms” are either genuinely ignorant or maliciously driven. Court orders must be obeyed. period,” Miguna stated.
Last week, Justice Hedwig Ong’udi directed Miguna to obtain a one-way emergency travel certificate from the Kenyan High Commission in Ottawa, Canada, or the mission in Berlin to facilitate his travel to Kenya.
“Once he is in possession of the travel documents and presentation of the same to Air France, the airline is directed to allow him to board the next immediate flight to Nairobi,” ordered the judge.
The judge further directed the government to allow Miguna entry into the country once he fulfills the stated requirements. Justice Ong’udi also directed Miguna to apply for his passport upon arrival in the country and directed the immigration department to issue the passport within seven days.
Miguna, who was illegally deported to Canada in 2018, has accused officials at the Kenyan embassy in Berlin of disobeying the order by Justice Ong’udi.
He is currently stuck in Germany after he was barred from boarding a flight to Nairobi over a red alert allegedly issued by the Kenyan government.
