    "In view of the refusal by the Department of Immigration to issue me with a valid Kenyan passport and facilitate my unconditional re-entry into Kenya as ordered by the High Court and formally requested by the Kenya National Commission for Human Rights on my behalf, and on advice from legal counsel.

    "I have instructed my advocates to immediately bring to the attention of the court the continued willful contempt of its orders.

    "We will provide you with my new arrival date as soon as the court gives further directions on this matter," he stated.
