These 5 people were also dramatically deported from Kenya just like Miguna Miguna

Miguna was dramatically put into a KLM flight departing Nairobi for Amsterdam a few minutes to 10PM on Tuesday evening.

Miguna was dramatically put into a KLM flight departing Nairobi for Amsterdam after refusing to take plea in a Kajiado court for charges related to the swearing-in of Raila Odinga as the People’s President.

"It is true. He was forced into a KLM flight minutes to 10pm and we gather he is headed to Canada. Such a travesty of justice," Dr John Khaminwa a member of his legal team told a local daily by phone.

NEXUS, "The official government newsroom" later tweeted a page photo of his passport and confirmed the deportation.

‘‘Miguna is headed home. The court ordered he gets released and the interior ministry obeyed the orders and even assisted him with a flight ticket home".

Miguna Miguna while being the first Kenyan to ever be deported from his home country contrarily to the Kenyan constitution he is however not a first.
