Controversial lawyer Miguna Miguna has canceled his trip to Kenya initially scheduled for Wednesday, May 16.

This is after the Kenyan Department of Immigration said it would not issue him with a Kenyan passport.

Miguna has maintained that a re-issuance of his passport to facilitate his unconditional re-entry into the country is what the High Court in Kenya had ordered.

In a statement released Wednesday, Miguna said he had decided to postpone his return and instructed his legal team to once again seek legal recourse over the alleged refusal by the Kenyan government to issue him with a travel document.

“I was determined to arrive home on schedule, however, just before my departure, I reluctantly cancelled my flight to Nairobi and postponed my next arrival date,” said Miguna.

“In view of the refusal by the Department of Immigration to issue me with a valid Kenyan passport and facilitate my unconditional re-entry into Kenya as ordered by the High Court and formally requested by the Kenya National Commission for Human Rights on my behalf, and on advice from legal counsel, I have instructed my advocates to immediately bring to the attention of the court the continued willful contempt of its orders.”

Miguna said he would announce his new return date as soon as the court gives further directions on the matter.

Watch Miguna’s interview on Voice of America’s Straight talk Africa show below:

Standard Digital reported  that the Kenyan government had on Sunday reiterated its earlier position that Miguna is not a Kenyan citizen, hence, will only be allowed into the country using his valid Canadian passport.

“In a letter to the Kenya National Commission on Human Rights, Immigration Principal Secretary Gordon Kihalangwa said Miguna must apply afresh to regain his Kenyan citizenship,” wrote the digital platform.

Kihalangwa said his department will not issue Miguna with a Kenyan Passport, since he has not applied for one.

“The department cannot issue Mr Miguna with a valid Kenyan passport as he has not made any application for the same. Moreover, and without prejudice, we reiterate that Mr Miguna has to regain his Kenyan citizenship before being issued with a Kenyan passport,” Kihalangwa said.

The Immigration boss further said the government would not purchase an air ticket for the lawyer as demanded by his legal team, saying the court did not issue any order to that effect.

Miguna was detained at the Jomo Kenyatta International Airport (JKIA) for several days as he attempted to re-enter the country following an earlier deportation. Authorities argued that he had failed to surrender his Canadian passport for stamping.

He however was forcefully removed from the airport under controversial circumstances, bundled onto an Emirates aircraft and deported to Dubai.

Miguna would later say that he was drugged before being ejected from the country.

The fiery lawyer later flew to Canada from where he has been issuing statements and doing interviews.

He has since become very critical of the “handshake” between president Uhuru Kenyatta and his erstwhile political nemesis, Raila Odinga, saying that the two had acted on their own behalf to the detriment of the country.

“A referendum is not the solution to our problems. The talks are not structured…they have not transparently disclosed what it is they are talking about it has now emerged that the only interest is make sure that Uhuru Kenyattta transforms himself into a “Putin” and become the all powerful Prime Minister with Raila Odinga becoming a ceremonial president,” he told VOA in a recent interview.

VIDEO: Kenyans in Diaspora reject BBI report, referendum

A lobby for Kenyans  in the diaspora is urging voters to reject the  Building Bridges Initiative report in the  referendum being championed by President Uhuru Kenyatta and ODM leader Raila Odinga.

According to Commonwealth Voter Privileges Right Association (COVPRA) the report is being imposed on Kenyans after the views of  certain groups and  elected leaders views were rejected..

Uhuru and Raila have rejected amendments to the final report saying those opposing it had time to give their views to the fourteen member committee they appointment.

 

The lobby avers that the recommendations in the final report do not represent the position of all Kenyans and a contested referendum would divide Kenyans.

“Kenyans should reject the BBI report. It is two man initiative that is being imposed on the people. The clergy have rejected it, several groups have rejected it. It’s not a Wanjiku Initiative. A few people and their surrogates want to change the Constitution for their personal gain,” Mr David Kimengere Waititu, the association’s Organising secretary told the Nation.

“It would have been  necessary to allow debate on all the issues that  arose in the final report  before coming  up with a bill. Kenyans are being taken for a ride,”  he said.

In June the group petitioned the committee  led by Garissa senator Yusuf Hajji to allow views from all dissenting voices saying all Kenyans should be allowed to participate.

“Freedom to Assembly, Freedom of expression and Freedom to political participation are so important in a  process like this one. It would be a sham  if the BBI Team was to ignore the views of some Kenyans. During the  meetings to sensitize the public on the initiative,” Kimengere said.

Leaders allied to Deputy President William Ruto and civil society are opposed to some of the proposals in the final report.

The group says a contested referendum would leave the country divided.

“We do not want a process that would leave Kenyans more divided. Let all Kenyans reject this report in a referendum to save their country from a few people who think they own Kenya.  We in Covpra, have our motherland at heart,” he said.

 Covpra said that the future of Kenya lies in the hands of the hollo polloi and not it’s leaders.

“ We call upon the Kenyans poor not to buy to the schemes of the dynasties. Let us protect our country by rejecting this monster called BBI if it goes to the referendum.

The group said in a statement that Kenyans should reject plots by politician to engage in chaos.

“At the end, this might result to   a badly contested referendum and  create a poisoned society ahead of the 2022 general elections. Let’s refuse any incitement to violence and stand up against the dynasties to shape the future of Kenya,” he says.

In their June petition, the group cited the strained relations between the Executive and the Judiciary and the fall out in the ruling Jubilee party over the process as a matter of concern.

“Our position stands that there is no proposal  to fix the simmering tensions between the two arms of government and between the two leaders of the Executive,” Mr Kimengere stated.

Ciru Njuguna is 28 and her husband Greg Twiss is 60. Please don’t let that age gap fool you, these two deeply love each other and they are living their best life together.

But when people say Ciru is just after Greg’s money and he will end up in a septic tank, that gets to her. She is not ashamed of her relationship and strongly urges the public to let other people be.

“My German husband is older than my father. People say I am his slave and he is a colonial master,” she says.

She sat down with Lynn Ngugi for this exclusive episode of Tuko Talks and this is her story.
