German MP Gregor Gysi Writes Letter to Kenya on Miguna Miguna's Return

  • German Member of Parliament (MP) Gregor Gysi has written a letter to the Kenyan Government regarding the return of National Resistance Movement (NRM) leader Miguna Miguna who is expected to jet into the country on March 26.

    In the letter addressed to Kenya's ambassador to German Joseph Magut, Dr  Gysi expressed concern that upon his return to Kenya, Miguna is worried that his safety cannot be guaranteed.

    The German lawmaker, therefore, called upon the Kenyan Government to accord Miguna with human rights as he has a right to live in Kenya.

    "Recently I had a conversation with the opposition politician of your country, Dr Miguna Miguna. He was induced to leave his country on February 6, 2018. He is now determined to return to Kenya on March 27, 2018, whose state citizen he is.

    "He and his friends are worried that his safety in Kenya could not be guaranteed. That is why I ask you in this letter to do everything possible to ensure that it is treated in accordance with human rights and has a chance to live freely in Kenya," Dr Gysi notes in the letter dated March 21, 2018.

    Meanwhile, Siaya Senator James Orengo on Friday revealed the details of the return of the NRM leader.

    Speaking during a meeting with Kenya National Commission on Human Rights (KNHCR), Orengo stated that Miguna will jet into the country using an Ethiopian Airline and is expected to land in the country at 10.30 am.

    Miguna Miguna will be arriving on Monday 26 March on an Ethiopian Airway flight at 10.30 in the morning,” he stated.

    The outspoken lawyer got a reprieve on February 15 when High Court Judge Luka Kimaru declared his deportation illegal.

    In his ruling, Justice Kimaru also ordered the Director of Immigration Gordon Kihalangwa to surrender his revoked passport to the court.
