Miguna Miguna demands to attend Ruto’s swearing-in

Controversial lawyer Miguna Miguna has demanded to be allowed back to Kenya for the Tuesday swearing-in ceremony of president-elect William Ruto.

In a letter to the chair of the Assumption of Office of the President Joseph Kinyua dated September 7, Miguna wants to be facilitated to travel to Nairobi.

Miguna, through his lawyer Adrian Kamotho Njenga, gave the Head of Public Service a 24-hour timeline to facilitate his travel, specifically by giving him emergency travel documents and lifting red alerts issued to airlines in 2018.

“Thus, your Committee has an overarching duty and legal obligation to ensure that our client is facilitated to attend the swearing-in ceremony of the 5th president, His Excellency William Samoei Ruto, without fail,” his letter read.

While noting that Miguna is a legitimate Kenyan citizen who is entitled to be present at Ruto’s swearing-in ceremony, Njenga proceeded to implore the committee to lift all red alerts that had been imposed on Miguna following his 2018 deportation.

“Further, may we have your earliest confirmation that all the red alerts and other unlawful restrictions that were ruthlessly imposed on our client have been lifted. “May you also get back to us with a replacement copy of our client’s passport in lieu of the one that was perforated and defaced by the primitive state officials who indiscriminately violated our client’s rights,” said Njenga in the letter.

The firebrand barrister and author was deported out of Kenya in early 2018 following the oath he administered to ODM leader Raila Odinga after the hotly contested 2017 presidential vote.
