Miguna: Why I have cancelled my flight back to Nairobi

Miguna has announced that NRM Kenya is the new Opposition party 'after ODM joined Jubilee.'

In a statement to the press, the deported National Resistance Movement self-declared General noted that failure by the government to avail him with the Kenyan passport punctured his return journey which was slated for Wednesday.

“In view of the refusal by the Department of Immigration to issue me with a valid Kenyan passport and facilitate my unconditional re-entry into Kenya as ordered by the High Court and formally requested by the Kenya National Commission for Human Rights on my behalf, and on advice from legal counsel, I have instructed my advocates to immediately bring to the attention of the court the continued willful contempt of its orders.

Postponed date

“I was determined to arrive home on schedule, however, just before my departure; I reluctantly cancelled my flight to Nairobi and postponed my next arrival date," part of the statement read.

He further added; “We will provide you with my new arrival date as soon as the court gives further directions on this matter.”

Protests

He has further urged his supporters to stage protests in a bid to push the government honor a series of court orders, which he’s said, would see his smooth entry into the country.

“I urge all Kenyan patriots and members of the National Revolutionary Movement of Kenya (NRMKe) to engage in peaceful protests against the illegitimate regime's continued violation of my rights and the rights of millions of Kenyans, its continued refusal to obey court orders, its looting of hundreds of billions of public resources and failure to adhere to and respect the constitution,” he said.

He has quipped that the National Super Alliance, a coalition for four political parties, is dead, adding that Raila Odinga led Orange Democratic Party has joined the ruling Jubilee.

“NASA is dead and with ODM having essentially joined Jubilee, the NRMKe is the new Kenyan opposition. We will and must march on until we defeat those trying to institutionalize the culture of impunity. We must establish a merit based democratic society,” he concluded his statement.
