Miguna Miguna gave an update on his current situation after the government directed that he needed to get new travel documents.
The controversial politician, courtesy of a press statement by the government spokesperson Cyrus Oguna, was told to seek the documents from the Kenyan embassy in Canada.
Miguna on Thursday came out and stated that he was still in Germany and his stand to travel back to Kenya had not changed.
The lawyer asserted that he would not get the travel papers and instead will have his lawyers move to court on Friday to seek for help.
“For Patriots, Fellow Kenyans and Friends of Kenya asking how I am: I am alive, healthy and focused like a laser beam. I am unbowed. I am still in Berlin, Germany. I am waiting for Despot Uhuru Kenyatta and his rogue cabals to OBEY COURT ORDERS and allow me to enter my motherland,” read a tweet from the legal advisor.
BBI can’t save Miguna
The majority leader of the Senate Kipchumba Murkomen, came to the defence of the embattled activist citing that his treatment was uncalled for.
With the Miguna saga not looking to tone down anytime soon, Murkomen pointed out that not even the BBI could save the legal practitioner from his current predicament.
He reiterated that the decision by the government to disobey court orders painted the picture of what exactly the BBI report could mean to Kenyans.
“Despite the pomp&the razzmatazz that accompanied the launch of BBI in Bomas of Kenya, it’s now clear that BBI itself cannot even save one citizen in the name of Miguna neither can it compel the obedience of court orders. If it can’t save one man, how will it save 47million Kenyans?” remarked Murkomen.

The latest frustrations towards Miguna have birthed divided opinions.
Miguna is exercising his rights
Narok Senator Ledama Olekina blasted city lawyer Donald Kipkorir after he referred to Miguna as a ‘Village idiot’.
According to the Olekina, he was shocked that the popular lawyer was among those fighting to ensure Miguna does not set foot in the country.
“The Senator expressed that the city legal advisor should desist from being a psychophant and see the sense in Miguna’s plight to return home. @DonaldBKipkorir I have never known you to be a sycophant? I was wrong! I thought you are a lawyer, an advocate of the high court@MigunaMiguna is Kenya nothing can ever change that! It is primitive for you to characterize him as a mad man yet he is simply exercising his rights!” articulated Olekina.

As the country waits for the next part of the Miguna drama to unfold, the big question remains whether even the government is above the law.
