Miguna Miguna’s message to Kenyans ahead of his homecoming

Miguna is expected in the country on November 16

I have no option but to go back to Canada - Miguna Miguna's statement after government of Kenya refused to obey court orders requiring his return to Kenya

Embattled lawyer Miguna Miguna has said that no one will be paid to attend his homecoming at Jomo Kenyatta International Airport (JKIA) come November 16, 2021.

In a number of tweets, Miguna made it clear that no one is funding his homecoming contrary to reports doing rounds on social media.

“Dear Kenyans, thank you for the overwhelming support and solidarity which you have emailed, or posted on the social media.

“Contrary to the despotic propaganda, there is no funding for my homecoming. I'm paying for all my expenses. No one will be paid to come to the JKIA,” reads a tweet from Miguna.

He added that Kenyans should be allowed to exercise their freedom and stop living like visitors in their own country.

“I have received large volumes of messages requesting permission to welcome me to Kenya. No one needs permission from me, or from anyone else, to go to the JKIA, or anywhere else. Kenyans must embrace all their freedoms and stop living as if they are visitors in our own country”, Miguna said.

On October 29, Miguna Miguna, disclosed that he will be coming home on November 16, 2021.

“For the avoidance of any doubt, I haacve used my Kenya Passport that Despot Uhuru Kenyatta perforated in February 2018 to book my flight to Kenya, scheduled to arrive in the morning of November 16, 2021 at the JKIA. Let no one claim that I have used any other passport,” he tweeted.

Miguna, who officiated the symbolic inauguration of opposition leader Raila Odinga as the people’s president in January 2018, was subsequently charged with treason and deported to Canada on February 6.

"For the avoidance of any doubt, I have used my Kenya Passport that despot Uhuru Kenyatta perforated in February 2018 to book my flight to Kenya," read part of Miguna’s tweet.

In 2018, the immigration department allegedly destroyed his passport, as the government stated that Miguna ceased to be a Kenyan citizen when he was granted Canadian citizenship.

"I am scheduled to arrive in the morning of November 16 2021 at the JKIA. Let no one claim that I have used any other passport," stated Miguna.

Chief Justice Willy Mutunga

Former Chief Justice Willy Mutunga is also set to travel to Canada and come back with the deported lawyer.

Mutunga announced that he’ll personally travel to Toronto to accompany the firebrand lawyer and self-proclaimed libertarian.

“I am also seeking out Kenyan journalists who will accompany me on this historic journey," the former Supreme Court president said on Wednesday, October 20.

“I appeal to all Kenyans of goodwill and to our friends in other countries to support this cause because it is just,” Mutunga said in a statement posted on Mutunga Elephant, an online site.
