Miguna Miguna Starts New War After Government Surrenders His Passport

  • Self-declared National Resistance Movement (NRM) General, Miguna Miguna, has launched a fresh attack on the government after his perforated passport was deposited at the High Court.

    Immigration Department Director Gordon Kihalangwa complied with an order from Justice Luka Kimaru to deposit Miguna's passport in court within seven days, surrendering the travel document on Wednesday.

    However, the passport was perforated, something the Immigration Department has maintained is standard procedure when one is deported as happened to Miguna when he was put on a flight to Canada.

    Miguna now says that by depositing a perforated passport, the state had failed to obey Justice Kimaru's order.

    "The respondents were not ordered to return to court something else different from what they had illegally confiscated.

    "What the illegitimate government has done is to deposit a defaced or perforated passport in defiance of the court order," Miguna posted on social media.

    The perforation of the passport means that Miguna will have to apply for a new one.

    The fiery lawyer further stated that the government's latest move was continuing a trend of disregarding the law.

    "This latest defiance must be seen in the light of the respondents’ continued contempt of court, disrespect to the court and violation of my constitutional rights," he wrote.

    The lawyer had earlier announced that he was planning his return to Kenya.

    In an interview on Monday, he stated that he would embark on a global tour before coming back to the country.

    He noted that he expected to be back in the country by mid-March.
