Miguna Miguna arrives in Kenya

Miguna was later escorted from JKIA by a security team.

On Wednesday October 19, Miguna shared photos of official invitation letters to attend the Mashujaa Day national celebrations at Uhuru Gardens and later a Garden Party at State House Nairobi.

"From the JKIA to #MashujaaDay. Then to State House Kenya. Patriots are FREE to be at the JKIA," said Miguna.

On October, 12, 2022, he revealed that the red alerts imposed on him had been lifted.

"The Government of William Ruto and Rigathi Gachagua has lifted the Red Alerts Uhuru Kenyatta imposed against me. My Arrival: October 20 at 6am," Miguna said on Twitter.

On February 26, Justice Chacha Mwita ordered his return to Kenya and suspended the State's declaration that he was a prohibited immigrant.

The High Court Judge further suspended the cancellation of Miguna's passport by the immigration boss Major General (Rtd) Gordon Kihalangwa.

"During the petitioner's first re-entry into Kenya, the chairperson of the Kenya National Human Rights Commission be allowed access to the immigration and customs clearance areas at the port of petitioner's re-entry in order to observe the extent of the respondent's observance of the relevant constitutional human rights and immigration laws applicable to the petitioner's rights to reenter Kenya," ordered Justice Mwita.

On March 12, Court of Appeal Judges Roseline Nambuye, Patrick Kiage and Kathurima M'Inoti ruled against the Government's appeal to stop his return.

Since his first deportation, Miguna embarked on a rigorous drive to meet Kenyans in the diaspora, discussing various issues with them including dual citizenship, while also promising to pursue the struggle to fight electoral injustice in the country.

He made appearances on countless online forums and radio stations in Canada, US and Europe advancing his NRM agenda.

He returned to the country the next month, only to be deported again. His citizenship was denounced by the Government terming his presence in Kenya as 'contrary to national interest'.

In a statement issued then by the Ministry of Interior and Co-ordination of National Government, Miguna was deported because he wasn't a Kenyan citizen.

The statement read: "Miguna Miguna, who is not a citizen of Kenya and whose presence in Kenya is contrary to national interest, be removed from Kenya to his country of origin Canada, and further direct that he remain in prison custody while arrangements for removal are being undertaken, and this order is sufficient warrant to keep the said in custody..."

In 2019, the high court ordered then Interior Cabinet Secretary Fred Matiang'i and Immigration Principal Secretary Gordon Kihalangwa to jointly pay lawyer Miguna Miguna Sh7.2 million from their pockets.

In granting the orders, Justice Chacha Mwita said taxpayers will not bear the burden for the pair's illegal actions early this year.

"Where overzealous civil servants act beyond the law, it is not for the taxpayers to bear the burden," ruled justice Mwita.

The CS and PS have been surcharged by the court twice over the Miguna arrests and deportation saga.

Justice George Odunga drew the first blood on March 29 when he required Sh200,000 be slashed from their monthly pay for failing to produce Miguna in court as had been ordered.

Aggrieved, they contested the orders before the Court of Appeal.
