Miguna Miguna Deported! Kenya Kuna Matata

Nairobi – Lawyers and human rights officials say a Kenyan politician who had been arrested for witnessing the “inauguration” of opposition leader Raila Odinga has been deported.

Interior Ministry spokesperson Mwenda Njoka said on Wednesday that Miguna Miguna renounced his Kenyan citizenship years back, becoming a Canadian citizen, and had never reclaimed Kenyan citizenship. This raises the questions of the Elections credibility which cleared Dr Miguna to run for the Nairobi Governor position, which only eligible Kenya citizens can run for office.

Kenyans outraged!

Kenyans of both political divide have reacted with anger, calling the Government to honour the laws of the land and cease persecuting  Kenyans who questioned status quo .

Rights activists and opposition supporters have demanded the freedom of Miguna, who had been in detention despite court orders on Friday and Monday for his release. Police said they charged Miguna in a court outside the capital, Nairobi.

Kenya’s government considers Odinga’s mock inauguration as the “people’s president” to be treason.
