Setback for Miguna after Government makes new decision on his return to Kenya

Just in

Miguna on Thursday successfully convinced the High Court to order the government to surrender his Kenyan passport back to him and to restore his Kenyan citizenship.

Shortly after the ruling, the government, through Interios PS Karanja Kibicho insisted that Miguna's deportation was lawful and in the country's best interest.

“We believe that the ruling by Justice Luka Kimaru, which directs the Director of Immigration Services to surrender Mr Miguna’s illegally acquired Kenyan passport to the court with seven days is not in the best interest of the country."

"In as much as the government respects the court’s decision, the Government still holds its earlier stated view that the deportation of Miguna Miguna was procedural and done in accordance with the law," the Interior PS stated.

Kibicho added that the state would appeal nullification order restoring the lawyer's citizenship.
