All that Canadian based controversial Kenyan lawyer Miguna Miguna had hoped for was a chance to travel “home”. He had already booked a flight to Nairobi from Berlin, Germany, where he assumed all would go smoothly. But not so fast sir, Kenyan authorities pulled a fast one! The Kenya embassy issued Miguna with a “prohibited immigrant” (PI) status.

The PI status effectively blocks Miguna from “ever stepping on Kenyan soil” and directly incriminates any airline that attempts to fly him to the country he calls home! This latest move has angered Kenya’s vibrant civil society groups with Kenya’s former chief justice Willy Mutunga and former ethics and anti-corruption head John Githongo vowing to challenge the action in court.

Miguna followers have accused Mr Odinga of being a “traitor” who had abandoned decades of struggle for radical changes in Nairobi

Sources in Nairobi claim that powerful people close to State House are the ones who are blocking the former aide to opposition chief Raila Odinga from returning to the country! It is claimed that these people are “running scared” of the lawyers’ rabid radical political stance that had seen him whip up political euphoria in the country.

The government, according to political insiders see in Miguna the single biggest threat to “the countries’ stability”, Mr Miguna’s open rebellion and daredevil attacks on President Uhuru Kenyatta before the 2017 elections endeared him to millions of opposition supporters.

Miguna followers have accused Mr Odinga of being a “traitor” who had abandoned decades of struggle for radical changes in Nairobi. Mr Miguna said on his Twitter that the “despotic’ regime in Nairobi and the “people’s conman” (read Odinga) do not want him back. But he has vowed to return before the 2022 elections and “spill the beans” on Raila who he says is not best placed to succeed Kenyatta as president. Miguna was Raila’s PA in the office of Prime Minister Raila Odinga in 2008-2011 before the two badly parted ways. His books “peeling back the mask” and “kidneys for the king” badly derided Odinga’s political track record.
