Exiled lawyer Miguna Miguna has announced that he will come back to Kenya in January 2020.
‘ My Flight to my Mother Land will land at the JKIA on January 11, 2020’, said the lawyer who run for Nairobi governor in the 2017 general elections.
There have been past announcements by the Canada-based lawyer of his intention to return to Kenya, most of which have not been honored.
In June 2019, Miguna said he would come back to Kenya on July 1st, he asked his supporters to join him on that day at the Jomo Kenyatta International Airport (JKIA).
Again, after the launch of the Building Bridges Initiatives (BBI) report in November, Miguna stated that he would try to re-gain entry into Kenya. The new date of 11th January 2020 seems to be a follow-up to that promise.
The conroversial lawyer, who called for the burning of president Uhuru Kenyattas effigies after the disputed 2017 elections, gave telpehone numbers to be contacted ‘in case anything happened to him’.
In February 2018, his house was forcefully broken into by police who later took him to a undisclosed location and in March forcefully deported him to Dubai.
Despite over 14 high court orders calling for the resinstatement of Mr. Miguna, the government of the day declared him persona non-grata.
Miguna has continued to stay in touch with his supporters through his social media pages on Facebook, Twitter and a YouTube channel.
It remains to be seen if the government will allow him back now that the BBI report that charts a new course for Kenyan politics has been released.
Miguna has stated severally that he doesn’t support the report.
