Lawyer Miguna Miguna was deported to Canada four years ago and attempts to return to his motherland have been fruitless.

Interior CS Fred Matiang’i stated that the controversial lawyer had lost his citizenship due to the requirements of the old constitution which had prohibited his return.

As such, Miguna was to fill a one-page form for citizen re-registration which would then allow him back to the country, claims the lawyer rubbished saying he cannot lose citizenship of his country of birth.

However, on Tuesday, September 20, the vocal lawyer took to social media to thank newly sworn-in president William Ruto after receiving his Kenyan passport.

Miguna, in a tweet, said that the President had ensured the processing of his passport which sets the stage for his return to Kenya.

According to him, he did not need to sign the one-page form as earlier directed by Interior CS Fred Matiang’i for him to get his traveling document.

Miuna who once worked for Azimio la Umoja One Kenya Coalition captain Raila Odinga said he was now waiting for the lifting of red alerts for him to travel back to his mother country.

“President William Samoei Ruto has had a new one delivered to me. I didn’t have to sign the silly forms they were speaking about. I’m waiting for the lifting of red alerts,” he said.

Soon after William Ruto and former Mathira MP Rigathi Gachagua were sworn in as the president and deputy president respectively, Miguna expressed optimism that the red alerts put in place by the previous regime barring his return to Kenya will be lifted.

“I’m happy to announce that President William Ruto has assured me that the red alerts will be lifted on Wednesday, September 14, 2022. Thereafter, I will have my Kenyan Passport renewed, and I’ll announce the date of my return to my motherland. Bravo!” Miguna Miguna said.
