This is what Miguna should have done - Mudavadi

Mudavadi was speaking on Sunday on a local TV station.

Speaking in an interview with a local TV station, Mr Mudavadi told the National Resistance ‘general’ should have followed the process to access the country.

While Mudavadi holds that the government should have used alternative means to handle Dr Miguna, he agreed with the subsequent removal of Miguna from the country in a controversial manner, tagged as ‘undocumented African man’.

“I have told you whether he was treated humanely or not, the bottom line is he should have followed the due process.

“When travelling through the airport, everybody is taken through a security process. One is required to even remove their belts, shoes and the checks are done. Also, when coming back, you produce your travel documents for stamping,” Mr Mudavadi said.

Miguna Miguna was fortnight ago forcefully removed from the country enroute to Toronto, Canada from Dubai, after he alleged that the Immigration officials injected him with sedative substance.

Raila Odinga blamed

Meanwhile, Nasa leader Raila Odinga who was at the airport before the forceful removal of Dr Miguna form the country, has answered back to critics who quipped that he had gone silent over the matter.

Few days ago, Sarah Elderkin, a former Raila aide, launched a savage attack on Miguna and defended his deportation by the Kenya government.

"Miguna has failed to follow suit. So, what makes him different? Only his inflated, distorted opinion of himself, which he feels puts him above the law," Elderkin said.

But in a statement on Sunday, Lone - Raila's adviser, said opponents of the Opposition leader and President Uhuru Kenyatta pact are "grasping at straws".

"Elderkin obviously has the right to express her opinion. Such assertions, made without a shred of evidence, are laughable but scurrilous as well," he said.

Lone said Raila has repeatedly shown that he believes Miguna should have been allowed to return home by going to JKIA to try and help him.

When the NRMKe general was denied entry through JKIA on March 26, Raila was among top leaders who went to the airport to help secure the lawyer's release.
