Miguna Miguna to land in JKIA in the next 72hrs

The High Court in Nairobi on Monday, November 22, ordered the government to  allow exiled Kenyan lawyer Miguna Miguna into the country.

In a ruling delivered by Justice Hedwig Ong’undi, the court ordered that Miguna be issued with an emergency travel document by the Kenyan Embassy in Berlin, Germany, or the High Commission where he has been held up since last week.

“Once in possession of the emergency travel documents and upon presentation of the same to the second respondent (Air France), the latter should allow the petitioner applicant to board the available flight to Kenya with immediate effect,” 

The government was ordered to allow the lawyer into the country using his Kenyan national identity card.

“Upon landing in Kenya, the petitioner applicant to be allowed by the immigration officer to use his national identity card for purposes of identification,” Justice Ong’udi ordered.

Miguna was elated by the court order and thanked his team of lawyers for the victory in court and promised to immediately visit the Kenyan embassy in Berlin. 

The development is one of more than 15 instances where the Kenyan courts have ordered the executive arm of government to allow the exiled Kenyan into his motherland.
