Controversial lawyer Miguna Miguna has left the country for London barely a month after his triumphant return from exile.
Miguna, on Wednesday, November 23, took to social media his pictures with the Kenya Airways (KQ) staff at the Jomo Kenyatta International Airport (JKIA) in Nairobi before boarding his flight.
The lawyer further announced that he will be back soon.
“To London, with love. I’ll be back soon! Viva!” Miguna captioned his photos posted on Twitter.
His departure comes just days after he declared a stand in the first major clash with President William Ruto’s Kenya Kwanza government over the importation of genetically modified maize.
Miguna, a fierce critic of the previous regime faulted the new administration for the move, noting that there was no public participation or consultation.
He termed as ‘reckless’ the move by the Kenyan government to lift the ban on the importation of GMO maize.
“I say a firm no to the mad rush to import GMO Maize and other foods to Kenya,
“I believe that it’s irresponsible and amounts to recklessness on the part of the Kenya Kwanza government,” Miguna wrote on Twitter.
Miguna had been in exile for more than four years after he was deported by the Jubilee administration after he administered an oath to Raila Odinga as the People’s president.
Upon touching Kenyan ground at JKIA last month, Miguna thanked President William Ruto for lifting the red alerts that barred his return and a section of Kenyans who braved the chilly weather to receive him.
“I’m very grateful for the warm welcome you have given me, I extend my gratitude to all Kenyans who have stood with me, with the constitution, who have stood with the cause of justice and judiciary. I’m thanking Kenyans who voted for the new administration, without this administration I would have not been back,” Said Miguna Maguna.
