Allies of the Kenya Kwanza party want outgoing Interior Cabinet Secretary Fred Matiang’i to be compelled to pay the Ksh7 million to Miguna Miguna as directed by the court.
Lawyer Nelson Havi championed the effort, arguing that Miguna should be awarded damages from the CS and the Director of Criminal Investigations (DCI), George Kinoti, for repeatedly ignoring instructions to help the activist return home.
“Another big score for the rule of law. The decree for the payment of damages of Ksh7 million by Matiangi, Gordon Kihalangwa and George Kinoti jointly and severally should now be enforced against the three,” Havi stated.
After being forced into exile for four years, Miguna praised president William Ruto for his assistance and posted a picture of his new passport.
“1687 days after Uhuru, Raila, Matiang’i, Kibicho, and Kihalangwa conspired to seize and destroy my passport, Ruto delivered a new one to me.
“Waiting for the lifting of the red alerts. I didn’t have to sign the forms they were speaking about,” Miguna stated.
After being elected, Ruto promised to fulfill his campaign promise and bring the humiliated lawyer home.
“We will bring back Miguna Miguna in the country within the shortest time possible. He is a Kenyan and even if he has committed a crime, we have laws in place that he would be tried against,” the President stated.
