Self styled National Resistance Movement (NRM) “general” Miguna Miguna was on Tuesday night ‘deported’ from Kenya to Canada.
Mr Miguna was put into a KLM flight departing Nairobi for Amsterdam minutes to 10pm.
“We are reliably informed that Miguna Miguna has been forced into a KLM flight for “deportation” to Canada. Now, how do you deport a Kenyan? This Country has been overrun by criminals,” Nelson Havi a lawyer wrote on Twitter.
A government Twitter handle – @NexusKE – posted a tweet saying that the Ministry of Interior had acted on the court orders to release Miguna.
Interior Ministry spokesman Mwenda Njoka also posted a tweet saying that Miguna had renounced his Kenyan citizenship but never re-applied after the promulgation of the 2010 Constitution.
Before departure, Miguna said he will fight the grievous violation of his rights by the Jubilee government.
“The despots have put me in a flight to Amsterdam enroute to Toronto, departure time right now.”
“Instead of taking me to court as ordered repeatedly by the courts, they seized my passports and drove me to the runaway at the JKIA from 6pm up to now,” Miguna said in a text message moments before he left JKIA.
