In a statement from Immigration Services Director General Alexander Muteshi, the State confirmed compliance with court orders issued on December 14, 2018, granting him entry. “This is to confirm that in compliance with the court orders issued on December 14, 2018, the Directorate will facilitate Miguna’s entry into the country,” read part of Muteshi’s statement.
My flight departs from Frankfurt and arrives at the JKIA, Nairobi, on Tuesday, January 7, 2020 at 9:25 p.m., as scheduled, God willing. There is no change. Pursuant to Justice Korir's ORDER of January 6, 2020, I will and must enter Kenya UNCONDITIONALLY as a Kenyan.

SEE ALSO :State: Miguna is free to come backThe statement came after the High Court ordered the department to facilitate Miguna’s entry today. The controversial lawyer was deported in February 2018 from Kenya to Canada. His deportation followed the role he played in Raila Odinga’s mock swearing-in ceremony at Uhuru Park on January 30 the same year. Government officials claimed Miguna was deported because he had denounced his Kenyan citizenship. Ministry of Interior spokesman Mwenda Njoka said Miguna renounced his Kenyan citizenship years back, acquired Canadian citizenship and never bothered to reclaim Kenyan citizenship in the legally prescribed manner, neither did he disclose that he had another country’s citizenship despite being a lawyer who should have known better.
