Lawyer Miguna Miguna is expected back in the country on January 7, 2020, and just moments after the Ministry of Interior stated that it would comply with all the court orders and facilitate his entry, Miguna has outlined his demands.

The statement was signed by Alexander Muteshi, Director General Directorate of Immigration Services but Miguna asked ‘patriots’ to ignore the statement as it is a damage control measure.

“Patriots, ignore the statement by Alexander Muteshi. It is their inept damage control after the High Court ORDERS today.

“Let the rogues comply with ALL the Court Orders issued today and the numerous ones issued in 2018.

“A good start would be the delivery of my Kenyan Passport,” he said.

A press statement from the Immigration Department partly read: “This is to confirm that in compliance with the court orders issued on December 14, 2018, the Directorate will facilitate Dr Miguna’s entry into the country."

The statement came after fresh orders were issued by High Court Judge Justice Weldon Korir, which directed the government to facilitate entry of Miguna Miguna.

On Monday, Miguna affirmed that he had departed Canada for Nairobi. He told the Government to grant him entry into the country stating that he is a Kenyan citizen whose fundamental rights must be respected.

“I'm not asking for any special treatment. I have never sought so-called "red carpet" treatment. I want and demand all my rights and fundamental freedoms to be respected.

“I want my valid Kenyan passport back. I want court orders to be obeyed and complied with. I must enter Kenya unconditionally as a Kenyan,” he posted on his social media page.

He then went on to laud his legal team headed by lawyer Dr John Khaminwa for seeking the court orders to direct the government agencies to facilitate his return.
