Nairobi, KENYA: NASA politician Miguna Miguna was on Tuesday night deported from Kenya to Canada.
The self-proclaimed National Resistance Movement (NRM) “general” was put into a KLM flight that was departing Nairobi for Canada some few minutes after 10pm.
Nelson Havi who has been one of the Lawyers following his case at the court broke the news on Twitter
“We are reliably informed that Miguna Miguna has been forced into a KLM flight for “deportation” to Canada. Now, how do you deport a Kenyan? This Country has been overrun by criminals.” tweeted Nelson havi
Reports indicate that Instead of him being taken to court as ordered repeatedly by the courts, Miguna passports were seized and he was driven to the runaway at the JKIA at around 6pm.
Photos of Miguna Miguna inside the KLM plane have been circulating on social media ever since the news broke on last evening.
Kenya’s ‘official government newsroom’ also confirmed that the Nasa politician was deported to Canada.
Earlier on Tuesday, Miguna was charged in Kajiado and taken to Nairobi but nobody got to see him.
Reports of his deportation come hours after High Court Judge Luka Kimaru barred the Director of Criminal Investigations (DCI) and the Inspector General (IG) of the police from preferring any criminal charges against him.
It is not clear what law the government used to eject him from Kenya at the moment.
Kenyans on Twitter have expressed their concern regarding the deportation of Miguna, most of them not understanding what law was used to eject him.
” Under Article 16 of the Constitution, a Kenyan by birth even if dual Citizen, can never lose his citizenship… Under Article 17, a foreigner who acquired Kenyan citizenship can lose it … Miguna’s deportation violates our Constitution.
#MigunaDeported,” Tweeted lawyer Donald Kipkorir.
