Miguna Miguna,the defiant exiled laywer may soon return to Kenya after the Interior Ministry asked immigration officers at Kenyan embassies in Berlin, Germany, and Ottawa, Canada, to provide him travel credentials.
The Interior Ministry has asked immigration authorities at Kenyan embassies in Berlin, Germany, and Ottawa, Canada, to grant travel passports to embattled lawyer Miguna Miguna.
Solicitor-General Kennedy Ogeto said in a letter to Law Society of Kenya president Nelson Havi that his office had encouraged the ministries of Interior and Foreign Affairs to implement court decisions and enable Mr Miguna to return to Kenya.
This counsel, according to Mr Ogeto, was based on a November 22 court judgment given by Justice Hedwig Ong’udi, which allowed Mr Miguna to remain in the country.
The judge ordered Mr. Miguna to get emergency travel documents from any Embassy or High Commission in his vicinity within 72 hours.
Given that Mr Miguna’s passport was never returned to him after he was forcibly deported to Canada in February 2018, Justice Ong’udi ordered that he be permitted to travel using his national identity card.
The High Court also ordered Mr Miguna to apply for a new passport as soon as he arrived in Kenya. Officials had utilized the fact that he lacked a passport to prevent him from entering Kenya.
