The Ministry of Interior and Coordination of National Government, under Dr Fred Matiang’i, has confirmed lawyer Miguna Miguna’s entry into the country.
Through an official press statement, the department of immigration, under Matiang’i’s ministry, has said that it will comply with court orders issued on December 14, 2018, that prompted the government to ensure Miguna’s return into the country.
On Monday, High Court Judge Justice Weldon Korir ruled that the government should not interfere with the return of the lawyer.
Before this official statement, Government Spokesman Cyrus Oguna had earlier on hinted that the state would not interfere with the General’s return.
However, the news was not welcomed by Miguna himself who termed it as an attempt by the government to control the damage they had already caused to him.
He further stated that it would be a good gesture if the republic would deliver his Kenyan passport to him.
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 their delivery of my Kenyan Passport. pic.twitter.com/kpOtimXTjT

The self-declared general had publicly announced his return to Kenya on January 7, 2020.
Miguna was unwillingly deported from the country on February 7, 2018, where he was forced to board a plane to Canada via Dubai.
