Nairobi, KENYA: Self-proclaimed National Resistance Movement general Miguna Miguna faced hurdles at the Immigration office in Jomo Kenyatta International Airport when he jetted back in the country, as the officials insisted that he acquires a Kenyan Visa before being allowed entry.

Confirming the arrival of Miguna on Tuesday, his lawyer Cliff Ombeta said the NRM politician had been allegedly asked to surrender his Canadian passport at JKIA, to which they declined and he was detained at the office.

His return comes as High court judge Justice Chacha Mwita on February 26 ruled that should the government fail to issue Miguna with a travel document, then he should be allowed to use his Canadian passport to regain entry into Kenya.

During his arrival at 2.30pm from Toronto, Canada, none of the opposition leaders had been seen at the airport to receive Miguna.

Miguna was deported to Canada on February 6 after he was arrested and detained for his role in the “swearing-in” of Nasa leader Raila Odinga as the People’s President.
