Miguna Miguna issues fresh statement after being detained in JKIA toilet

Miguna wrote his statement from a toilet at JKIA Terminal 2.

In a scathing attack at the government and immigration officials, Miguna narrates his harrowing ordeal and the sequence of events that have led to violation of numerous court orders which go against his human rights as a Kenyan citizen.

Harrowing experience

"In full view of the media and therefore the entire world, the respondents physically assaulted me, tore my clothes, refused to allow me to re-enter Kenya, abducted me and attempted to force me to fly out to Dubai without any documentation whatsoever.

I have been illegally detained incommunicado without charge or legal justification since March 26th.

I am detained inside a tiny and filthy toilet without access to basic hygiene and necessities of life. The respondents haven’t provided me with food, water and medical attention in addition to not according me my right to counsel.

I have no access to a bathroom and I have not taken a shower since Sunday, March 25th. The toilet where I am being held has no shower or bathtub. There is only hot water in the toilet, hence, I am also unable to wash my face and brush my teeth," Miguna wrote in his statement.

Access to lawyers

The NRM General also complained he has been denied access to his lawyers since his detention with the government unsuccessfully attempting to evade service of the court order.

On Tuesday, Miguna's advocates obtained an order from the High Court directing the Cabinet Secretary for Interior and Cordination of National Government, Fred Matiang’i, Director of Immigration, Gordon Kihalangwa, the Inspector General of Police, Joseph Bounett, Director of Criminal Investigations, George Kinoti, head of the Flying Squad, Said Kiprotich, the OCPD for JKIA, and the Attorney General to release him and bring him before the duty judge on Wednesday morning at 9am.
