What Miguna Needs To Do To Fly Back To Kenya- Kibicho


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.

Interior Principal Secretary Dr Karanja Kibicho has denied claims that the government issued red alerts to exiled lawyer Miguna Miguna which blocked his return to Kenya on November 16, 2021.

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.

He had blamed the government for issuing new red alerts against him that barred international airlines from flying him back into the country.

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”.

Presiding Judge Hedwig Ong’undi was left to decide the matter with the court and had informed both sides that the ruling will be made on November 22, 2021.
