Is the government worried about his return?
On Wednesday, September 28, Miguna said in a virtual interview that his return to Kenya would be a fulfillment of his rights to be in his native country and not an indication that he supports Ruto’s administration.
“Ruto ought to be terrified of me if he wants to operate like a dictator. Miguna is Ruto’s friend and ally if he chooses to lead by the democratic values of rule of law and fair governance,” he said.
He issued a stern warning that he would stand against any efforts to undermine the rule of law or violate human rights, and he vowed to do so.
When asked about the current standing of his return to Kenya, Miguna said that he had not yet received confirmation from the government that the red alerts issued against him had been removed.
“I’m coming back on October 20, but I’m not sure whether the Red Alert has indeed been withdrawn,” he remarked.
Since his contentious deportation to Canada in January 2018 following his participation in former Prime Minister Raila Odinga’s sham oath on January 30 at Uhuru Park, Miguna has been living in exile.
The government of Kenya claimed in 2018 that Miguna had lost his Kenyan citizenship when he became a Canadian citizen, notwithstanding his insistence that he is a Kenyan citizen by birth.
