Miguna Miguna Deported For the Second Time

NRMKe leader Miguna Miguna has been deported tonight, his lawyer Nelson Havi has confirmed his fears via twitter.

“Jambo. We escaped from the airport and are all safe: Orengo, Ombeta, Soweto and I. However, we think they are deporting Miguna Miguna again,” Havi tweeted.

Nelson Havi together with other lawyers Lawyers James Orengo (SC), Cliff Ombeta, and Julie Soweto were roughed up and chased by heavily armed GSU police officers when they attempted to serve court orders at JKIA.

The lawyers had sought to serve the orders issued by High Court judge Justice George Odunga in relation to the detention of NRMKe leader General Miguna Miguna.

The orders requires the police to release Miguna unconditionally.

The latter has been detained at JKIA Terminal 2 for three days for lack of a Kenyan passport to allow him enter the country.

He arrived on Monday but was not cleared by immigration leading to a standoff that has persisted since then. He had been deported to Canada on February 6 after being declared a persona non grata.

A contingent of GSU officers dispersed the lawyers as they attempted to read the orders to the officers manning the premises where Miguna is being held.

“Miguna Miguna has just been seized and we are reliably informed of a scheme to unlawfully remove him from the jurisdiction tonight in further defiance of the court order made today,” the lawyer added.
