VIDEO: Miguna speaks to Daily Nation’s Chris Wamalwa, gives a detailed account of his ordeal with Kenyan police

Published

on

Self-declared National Resistance Movement (NRM) “general” Miguna Miguna who was recently banished to Canada has said that plans are underway for his return to Kenya that has branded him persona non grata.

In an exclusive interview with Nation in his law offices in Toronto Canada over the weekend, the fiery lawyer who on January 30 participated in the “swearing-in” of opposition leader Raila Odinga as the people’s president, Dr Miguna said nothing, not even President Uhuru Kenyatta would prevent him from returning home to continue advocating for electoral justice.

 

 

ORDERS

“I’ve just received reports that Uhuru Kenyatta and William Ruto are saying that it doesn’t matter how many orders I obtain. I may obtain a million orders but they will never allow me back to Kenya. My message to Uhuru Kenyatta and William Ruto is this, Kenya does not belong to you and I’ll be back. Sorry,” he said.

Prodded further on when he will return home, Mr. Miguna said, “As soon as I can go. I know my wife will not be happy to hear that but some of these things you have to decide how you want to live your life and the legacy you want to leave behind. As we speak, my lawyers have filed a petition today.”

COURT PETITION

He said his team of lawyers has moved to the High Court to seek his exoneration from claims that he had been deported so that he can return to Kenya as quickly as possible.

“As we speak, my lawyers filed a petition today in the High Court seeking to invalidate the purported decision of withdrawing my citizenship,” Dr Miguna said.

Calling on the international community to intensify pressure on the Kenyan government to respect the rule of law and press freedom, Dr Miguna said western governments that purport to be champions of democracy, accountability and press freedom have tended to pay lip service to the importance of these values when it comes to Africa and other third world countries.

“These so-called western government should do more than just paying lip service to these things,” he added.

Dr Miguna said his recent altercation with the government should serve as a wakeup call for the people in diaspora to take keen interest in what is going on back at home.

He said his message to the diaspora is to remain organised, focused and fearless.

“Understand that Kenya belongs to all of us,” he added.

  1. Kenyan born human rights activist ("Newton")

    February 11, 2018 at 11:18 am

    Lawyer Miguna Miguna is an Old Kenyan Human Activist who was very active in Kenya in the 80s and in the 90s. What he and others were against in those days, persist up to this day. What would stop him from challenging and from engaging the Kenya Government today? Polite challenge and engagement of the Kenya Government to govern well has taken many years. Today, Kenya is loosing Ksh 608 billion to corruption every year as the Kenya Army, the Kenya Civil Servants, the Teachers and the Kenya Police continue to suffer from meager pay, as the Kenya Government continue with its usual silence. The inflation has continued to rise, resulting to the high rocket of the prizes of essential commodities, and the Kenya debt has continued to climb high.
    Different methods and different languages should be applied in order to put the Kenya Government on its heels in so that the Nation can be saved. Lawyer Miguna Miguna is using one of the methods and or one of the languages to wake up the sleeping Kenya Government. May it be known to Lawyer Miguna Miguna that he is on the right path and he should put more efforts in what he is doing.

It’s tough, it’s naturally tough, she was my best friend

She was a doctor who was very big on mental health, psychology and psychiatry, and she had started initiatives to do with mental health. So what we are trying to do, and we have big shoes to fill, is see how to continue with that work.

He said mental health is a serious problem in Kenya, and Dr Muigai had started different initiatives to tackle it.

Award-winning actress Nyce Wanjeri popularly known as Shiro of Auntie Boss has called it a day at the show.

This comes barely a week after she won the Best Actress in a comedy and TV series at this year’s Africa Magic Viewers’ Choice Awards (AMVCA).

She wrote:

Now, for 15 seasons, that is almost 200 episodes on NTV, auntie boss has been my home. I have been humbled to work with an amazing production house that is moonbeam and their very abled selection of cast and crew. I have been blessed and lucky so far, but that beautiful journey that started 3 or so years ago is soon coming to an end.

She went on:

This coming Tuesday, the 18th of September, will have me on my last fresh episode of Auntie Boss on NTV, lakini repeats zitakuwa Maisha Magic bado.

I won’t pretend to not be a little bit sad because Shiro is a character I had personally fallen in love with. 😢 She was a dear to many Kenyans and the amazing time I’ve spent on set watching the amazing actors and actresses grow are moments I am going to treasure forever!

But whatever has a beginning must have an end, and so this chapter of Shiro must come to an end to make way for something else, somewhere else. I promised that I’ll keep entertaining till I have no strength left in me so I will continue in one way or another.

We can only thank God that this is happening while we are at the top, with wins and nominations and continental recognition for myself and also the show Auntie Boss na sio kuchoka mmechoka na sisi.

Also, it will not only be my last episode on the show, but the last time you the fans will interact with me as Shiro.

Since I am no longer under the show and the production company that owns the show and the character shiro, I am required to no longer appear or engage as Sshiro. I know I have no control over the millions of fans of the show referring to me as Shiro Warugongo on social media or on the streets, sitalenga, nitaitika na selfie tutapiga. All I am trying to say is I no longer represent the company or the show or the character Shiro, so anything I do or say is for Nyce Wanjeri
