 Nairobi,KENYA:Fiery politician and Lawyer Miguna Miguna who was on Tuesday evening deported to Canada aboard a KLM flight has spoken a few hours after he was deported to Canada.

In a press  statement to  newsrooms from Canada, Miguna  stated that he had never denounced his Kenyan passport.

“Fourth, I have never, ever renounced my Kenyan citizenship and will never do that. I’ve never even contemplated it. Fifth, the constitution is crystal clear: no one can invalidate or purport to cancel the citizenship of a Kenyan born citizen. So, Matiang’i has no authority – and I didn’t request him – to “take me home” as he shamelessly claimed.” Miguna wrote.

Miguna who was deported abroad a KLM dutchlines flight  accused the government of violating his fundamental rights during the deportation process.

Miguna who  refused to take plea at the Kajiado magistrate courts on Tuesday saying he was supposed to appear before the Mlimani law courts  accused state officers of threatening to kill him and seizing his property without  following the laid out legal procedures.

“Eighth, three of the goons who kidnapped me and illegally held me incommunicado threatened to kill me. They are Chief Inspector Njoroge, a Mr. Kamau (an immigration officer) and the head of the Flying Squad, Said!” Miguna wrote.

This comes as the court has ordered the inspector general of police Joseph Boinnet and the directorate of criminal investigations George Kinoti to explain the circumstances under which Miguna Miguna was released from their custody to the directorate of immigrations despite the existence of a court order.

In a ruling delivered by Mlimani laws courts Judge , Justice Luka Kimaru, the court also ordered the immigration PS Gordon Kihalangwa to explain the circumstances under which he received Miguna with an existing court order.

“The immigration PS Gordon Kihangalwa to swear an affidavit to indicate the circumstances under which he assumed the custody of the applicant” Justice Luka Kimaru read out the ruling.

The three are supposed to file the affidavits by Friday the 9th  before the hearing of the matter on the 14th of this month.

The court also ordered Boinnet and Kinoti to appear before the court to explain why they should not be punished over contempt of court.

Kimaru had on Tuesday freed Miguna  who had earlier refused to take plea at the Kajiado law courts.
