Miguna Fires Back At Kibicho Over Red Alerts Saga


Miguna made it crystal clear that PS Kibicho was not a party in court proceedings that are seeking to compel the government to scrap the red alerts issued against him to facilitate his homecoming.

Exiled lawyer Miguna Miguna has responded to claims by Interior Principal Secretary Dr Karanja Kibicho that the government did not issue red alerts which blocked his return to Kenya on November 16, 2021.

Taking to Twitter on Friday, November 19, Miguna made it crystal clear that PS Kibicho was not a party in court proceedings that are seeking to compel the government to scrap the red alerts issued against him to facilitate his homecoming.

He further termed Kibicho’s immediate boss, Interior Cabinet Secretary (CS) Fred Matiang’i as a party.

“Mr Karanja Kibicho is not a party to the court proceedings concerning President Uhuru Kenyatta’s barbaric violations of my rights and disobedience of multiple court orders. Fred Matiangi, his immediate boss, who was convicted and adjudged unfit to hold public office, is a party,” his response read.

He further revealed that Kibicho knows that he was not present when he booked and took his flight and that State House had sent the red alerts to French airline Air France before he arrived at the airport in Berlin.

Miguna added that the airline mentioned nothing about his visa and that the government was ordered to let him fly into the country with his national identity card.

“FACT: Canada does not issue Kenyan passports. Justice Mwita ordered Kibicho and his fellow thugs to unconditionally facilitate my return home, issue me a new passport, and buy air tickets. Orders they have disobeyed,” he added.

Kibicho told the High Court in Milimani, Nairobi on Thursday, November 18 that he was not notified of any red alerts issued against Miguna by the government or any of its agencies on the matter.

“I confirm that no government agency has issued any so-called red alert to Air France and Lufthansa Group (operating as German Airlines) in relation to Miguna’s travel to Kenya,” Kibicho affirmed.

He further explained why Miguna was barred from flying back to Nairobi as the lawyer was using a Canadian passport as a Canadian citizen, thus he is required to seek a visa to be allowed to board a flight to the capital city.

Kibicho insisted that the lawyer could not enter the country with just his national identity card. He added that he must visit the Kenya High Commission in Ottawa, Canada to get the right documents to facilitate his return.

Miguna was deported in 2018 after swearing in ODM party leader Raila Odinga as ‘the People’s President’, and has attempted to return to the country twice. His last attempt was on November 16, 2021, his confirmed return date, where he had claimed he was stopped from boarding an Air France flight to Nairobi from the Brandenburg Airport in Berlin, Germany.

His lawyers, led by Dr John Khaminwa and Law Society of Kenya president Nelson Havi promptly moved to court to compel the government to remove the red alerts issued against him so that he can fly back home.

They indicated in their application that Miguna should be given an “immediate next available flight to Paris, France, en route to Nairobi, Kenya, and disregard any red alert or restriction by the Government of Kenya”.
