Miguna takes action after Government denied him entry into Kenya

Miguna had been detained inside a toilet at the Jomo Kenyatta International Airport (JKIA).

Miguna has now sued the State seeking unrestricted entry following the long standoff with security officials over his visa.

According to his lawyer John Khaminwa, Miguna wants the court to block his deportation.

Miguna's lawyer Nelson Havi had earlier in the day announced that his client had been detained inside a toilet at the Jomo Kenyatta International Airport (JKIA).

Havi stated that GSU officers deployed at the Airport denied Miguna access to legal counsel.

Police had earlier cut off access to terminal two in the morning where Dr Miguna is locked with only Siaya Senator James Orengo has been granted access to see Miguna.

The impasse continued Tuesday morning after Miguna's lawyer Cliff Ombeta said his client will not fill the citizenship forms issued by the Immigration department.

Acting Director of Immigration Services Joseph Munywoki said Miguna Miguna was asked to present his documents to facilitate his entry, but he became uncontrollable only giving his National Identity card.

General Service Unit Officers in full combat gear chased journalists out of JKIA hours after assaulting and injuring several media staff covering the Miguna standoff.
