High Court makes Final ruling on Miguna's Citizenship
His lawyer Nelson Havi confirmed that the ruling made ensured that Miguna was lawfully a Kenyan Citizen.
"Miguna Miguna is a citizen by birth, never lost his citizenship by acquiring Canadian citizenship. Respondents had no power to revoke his citizenship. Even if they could, they never acted procedurally," stated Havi.
The ruling made by Judge Chacha Mwita stated that the government did not follow the correct process in the removal of Miguna.
Mwita further pointed out that citizenship by birth could not be cancelled.
“Even if the petitioner (Miguna) acquired Canadian citizenship, he did not lose his Kenya citizenship.
“He remains a citizen of Kenya,” remarked the judge.
