The self-styled general of the National Resistance Movement- Kenya (NRM-k) Miguna Miguna refuted claims that he had renounced his Kenyan citizenship. According to a press statement sent to news rooms, Miguna stated that he has never and will never denounce his Kenyan citizenship.
The controversial deportation of the NRM-k general Miguna Miguna has elicited a mixture of reactions among Kenyans with some commending the government’s move to deport the general while others opposed the move.
Miguna on Wednesday speaking to the BBC narrated the entire ordeal that led to his deportation on Tuesday night instead of being presented in court in Nairobi as ordered by the court. At least 99 percent of Kenyans were shocked when the news of Miguna’s deportation broke.
Miguna was arrested on Friday morning at his house in an incident he termed as abduction and illegally remained under police custody with the relevant authorities withholding him from taking plea in court contrary to the constitution of Kenya with respect to an arrested suspect.
According to the press statement sent to newsrooms, Miguna who is a highly learned lawyer, speaks of the constitution saying that one cannot lose his birth citizenship as I quote: “the constitution is crystal clear: no one can invalidate or purport to cancel the citizenship of a Kenyan born citizen. So, Matiang’i has no authority – and I didn’t request him – to “take me home” as he shamelessly claimed.” end of quote.
Miguna has vowed to challenge what he termed as illegal and unconstitutional actions by the government of Kenya in the corridors of justice through his advocates.
