BY BMJ MURIITHI

Kenyan lawyer and politician Miguna Miguna Wednesday responded to critics whom he said were casting aspersions and attacking him for raising funds meant for #NRMKe operations, his airfare, repairs and legal fees. Standard Digital, Nairobi News (an online publication owned by Nation Media Group) and The Star Newspaper insinuated that Dr Miguna was broke and was begging for airfare back home.

This was after Miguna, who was forcefully removed out of Kenya and exiled in Canada, posted the following message on Twitter on Tuesday March 6th:

Although many of his supporters welcomed the tweet, his detractors were not amused and responded by throwing barbs at him. He responded promptly.

Below is his full statement:

 

I don’t have to validate myself to anyone

BY MIGUNA MIGUNA

I have read an article in The Standard DigitalDAILY NATION‘s “Nairobi News” an online publication and The Star, Kenya, casting aspersions and attacking me for raising funds for #NRMKe operations, my air fare, repairs to my destroyed house and my legal fees.

The following is my response.

I don’t have to validate myself to anyone.

Wasn’t Jesus Christ the Son of God crucified for trying to save others?

If no one is attacking you, it means you are doing nothing substantive or effective!

Kenyans seek contributions daily for legal fees, medical bills, tuition – even to help them marry.

Fundraising for political activities are routine – even in the West!

Barack Obama wouldn’t have become the president of the USA had he not received financial support from tens of millions of ordinary Americans!

Artificial billionaires who have looted public funds in the despotic Jubilee routinely raise funds from ordinary Kenyans in order to campaign.

Wealthy individuals in NASA and other political formations have also routinely raised funds to campaign and execute numerous activities.

Anyone demanding or expecting me to fund #NRMKe activities, pay my huge legal fees and repair my house that the despotic duo have desecrated from my “wealth” is drunk morally contaminated. S/he is used to con-men and con-women who have looted public funds.

A man of integrity like me who has not stolen a dime cannot afford it. That’s why I threaten the despots. That’s why they cower in fear in my presence until they are forced to expel me from my own country of birth.

I will not change!

I will not become a thief in order to satisfy the debauched expectations of a compromised media and a few delusional despotic surrogates.

I have never stolen or misappropriated a dime from the public or private sector.

I am not wealthy and I do not consider one’s individual wealth as a qualification for public office.

At 5:30 a.m. on February 2, 2018 when state sponsored gangsters blew open my front door using military detonators (charges) and extensively destroyed my house, I had a right to peaceful enjoyment of my home, safety and physical and psychological integrity, which were flagrantly violated.

My house remains destroyed. It has not been repaired.

I was subsequently violently abducted and detained incommunicado while being subjected to physical and emotional torture.

More than seven court orders directing my release were ignored.

I was not given access to physicians, lawyers and my family during those harrowing five days.

On the sixth day, I was forcefully removed from Kenya and sent into exile.

I was forcefully removed from Kenya against my will while wearing slippers and the clothes I had been abducted in.

I was abducted, detained, tortured and forcefully exiled for strongly opposing despotism, the perpetration of the culture of impunity, the abrogation of the constitution and the rule of law and routine violations of human rights by the illegitimate regime of Uhuru Kenyatta and William Samoei Ruto.

I have been fighting for freedom since 1986. At 3:30 a.m. on November 14, 1987, the same state sponsored goons had abducted, detained me incommunicado and tortured me for weeks before expelling me from the University of Nairobi where I was a student leader.

I subsequently spent more than ten years in political exile fighting for freedom.

Anyone who questions me or my intentions after my 30 years of sacrifice should never, ever contact me again.

I take it very personally!

No one is going to convince me that I should sacrifice myself for millions of Kenyans if I cannot seek assistance from the same people I have sacrificed myself for – and for whom I am still sacrificing for.

That’s completely unacceptable!

I am a human being like everyone else.

I breathe, eat, need shelter, clothing, etc – and for my family – like everyone else!

I will not ask anyone for permission to live and to take care of myself!!

That will never happen!

The same people attacking me cannot sacrifice one hour fighting for my freedom.

Virtually all of them couldn’t even show up at Uhuru Park on January 30, 2018 when I swore-in The People’s President, leave alone being prepared to be charged with treason, being abducted and detained incommunicado, being tortured, and facing risks of being murdered, or even being prepared to be separated from their loved ones for a day!

Without my lawyers’ fees and disbursements paid, I would not be able to return to Kenya.

Without my house repaired and secured, I will not be able to live, leave alone fight for my rights and the rights of 45 million Kenyans.

I wouldn’t be able to continue the struggle. Yet these are my rights; rights that are entrenched in the Constitution.

My right to Kenyan citizenship is a birthright that should never be interferred with and cannot be suspended or cancelled.

My right to a valid Kenyan passport is vested in the Constition.

My right to free thought, conscience, speech, association and movement are entrenched, vested and protected in the Constitution of Kenya, 2010!

The foregoing are not privileges granted by the state or regime of the day regardless as to whether the regime is legitimate or illegitimate.

So, if someone takes offence that I am trying to have my house repaired, my legal fees paid and my rights protected at the same time as I raise funds and mobilize support to strengthen the NRMKe, does that person believe in my right to live and everything that pertains to it or s/he believes I am his or her slave – only to serve his or her interests but not mine?

I reject that thinking completely and unreservedly – and I frankly don’t care who supports it.

Before criticizing or attacking someone, each one of us must think deeply about what sacrifices each one of us has made in our individual lives to protect the rights and freedoms of others, then compare and contrast with what the person you are attacking or criticizing has done for you or is presently doing.

After all, what are we really fighting for?

It must start with each one of our individual rights, interests and needs then it extends outwards.

I know there are lots of people who are celebrating that I am “out of the way.” They feel threatened by their inaction, cowardice and/or hypocrisy.

They are incapacitated by their unfounded and baseless fears, envy and stupidity.

I’m not going to worry about such people.

I’m focused and marching ahead!!!

Thank you.

Published

By JUDITH GICOBI

Kenyan-Canadian lawyer, Miguna Miguna, is urging Kenyans in the United Kingdom to partake in a protest against President Kenyatta as he plans to visit the country this week.

Miguna, through his twitter page on Saturday, addressed his supporters, asking them to stage a protest where President Kenyatta will be staying during his visit to the UK. The protest is to demand that the president obeys court rules requiring the government to allow him to enter the country. 

“Red Alert! Notice to all Patriots in London! Uhuru Kenyatta will be in London, UK, from January 20, 2020,” wrote Miguna.

He added: “He will be shuttling between the Town House located at 66 Lowndes Square, Kensington, and 10 Downing Street. Find him. Show him that No One is Above the Law!” 

The president is set to attend the UK-Africa Investment Summit in London from Monday, January 20th, former Foreign Affairs CS Monica Juma confirmed.

“Arrived in London, ahead of H.E. President Uhuru Kenyatta who, at the invitation of Prime Minister Boris Johnson, will join other leaders for the Africa-UK investment summit on 20th January 2020,” Dr. Juma wrote on Twitter on Saturday.

Miguna is currently stuck in Germany after his return to Kenya on January 7 th was rendered impossible by the Kenyan Government that issued a red alert warning airlines not to fly Miguna to Kenya or any African nation.

VIDEO: New laws which could have US Green Card holders deported take effect as thousands rush to acquire Citizenship

Published

If you are a Green Card holder in the US and you  think you can do whatever you like without running into  the risk of deportation, then think again. There are some new laws going into effect that could get permanent residents deported.

Under the newa Trump rules, a simple mistake is no longer an excuse and simply not knowing what the new rules are could get someone holding a green card kicked out of the United States for good. The United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) has instituted some new rules that will take effect in 2020.

Some of the new green card rules for 2020 which could get you in trouble if not obeyed are:
  •  Failing to admit you’re an immigrant on your tax returns or failing to report some of your income could get you deported
  • Men between the ages of 18 and 25 who hold a green card must register with the U.S. Selective Service; failure to do so could lead to deportation
  • An extended overseas vacation could cost someone their green card – it could be considered “abandonment” of the green card. WATCH:

 

Young men between the ages of 18 and 25 who hold a green card and do not register with the Selective Service could also be deported.  Even a vacation overseas could cost someone their green card.

Some are no longer willing to take the chance by simply holding a green card, which must be renewed every ten years, and instead they’re becoming U.S. citizens to avoid deportation.
She says calling these infractions a mistake is no longer an option.

Dorene Wangare, a 36-year-old Kenyan was found dead in her room in Qatar on Wednesday morning.

This, according to her family, was barely two months after she moved to the Gulf nation.

According to Wangare’s mobrother , she traveled to Qatar in November last year and was optimistic the job she had landed there would help her earn enough money to support her two kids. Her son, 14, is a Form Two student while her eight-year-old daughter is in Class Three.

“She was the family breadwinner and would come to our rescue whenever the landlord locked us out due to accumulated rent arrears,” said Mable Masitsa, the deceased’s mother.

When thirty-six-year-old Dorine Wangare bade her family goodbye to travel to Qatar in November last year, she knew her dream of helping her poor mother and siblings had finally come true.

The mother of two was excited at the prospect of working in the Middle East country according to her follower brother, Reinhard Mwangi. Little did Dorine know that that was her last goodbye to her family.Dorine was optimistic the job she had landed in Qatar would earn her enough money to help her support her son, 14 and daughter 8, who are in Form Two and class three respectively.

“She was the family breadwinner and would come to our rescue whenever the landlord locked us out due to accumulated rent arrears,” said Mable Masitsa, the deceased’s mother. According to Ms Masitsa, her daughter never thought her journey to the Middle East would be her last with family.Dorine died in Qatar on Tuesday night moments after she had a long chat with her mother and the brother leaving her family with many unanswered questions even as they await a postmortem report.

“Dorine called inquiring about school fees for her two children and other items required in school so that she could budget for them. The news of her death came as a shock. I cannot believe my daughter left us in such a mysterious way,” said Ms Masitsa.A somber mood engulfed their home at Shitawa in the outskirts of Kakamega town with family, friends and church members condoling with Ms Masitsa.“I talked to my sister until late into the night. She told me it was too cold in Qatar and she had been forced to put on two sweaters and a pair of trousers.

I told her to stay indoors and that was the last communication I had with Dorine,” recalled Mr Mwangi.According to Mwangi, the sister developed some complications whenever the weather was too cold.“She was allergic to cold weather. A friend of hers said she opted to use a Jiko in her room where she would be discovered dead on Wednesday morning.”Dorine’s Kenyan friends in Qatar have been updating the family on how things have been progressing since the death of their kin.However, Ms Masitsa and her son are at loss on how they will facilitate the transportation of the body from Qatar to Kenya.“We don’t have anywhere to run to for help.

Dorine was supposed to send money for rent, food and school fees but death took her away, it is a pity to imagine we might not be able to see her body anytime soon,” she said.  The family is appealing to the national government to help them have the body airlifted from Qatar to Kisumu.“It will be easy for us to make arrangements to have the body ferried here even though we face the dilemma of where to bury her,” said Mwangi.It was not the first time Dorine had travelled to the Middle East in search of greener pastures.She first spent at least four years in Saudi Arabia where her employer tortured her before returning home.The deceased adds to the growing list of Kenyans who endure suffering in the quest for employment opportunities in the Middle East.
