BY KORIR JUMA,NAIROBI,8TH FEB 2018-NInterior cabinet secretary Fred Matiangi says lawyer Miguna Miguna was deported because he denounced his nationality as a Kenyan citizen.Miguna instead is said to have acquired Canadian citizenship.
According to a a deportation order tabled in court on Wednesday and signed by Interior Cabinet Secretary Fred Matiangi showed that the Immigration Department had been carrying out investigations on the matter until Monday night when a decision to kick him out was reached.
State Counsel Duncan Ondimu tabled the order in court during a session convened by Justice Luka Kimaru following orders he issued Tuesday to have the fiery politician produced.
“There was an order which was made on the 6th day of February 2018 signed by the Cabinet Secretary in charge of Interior. The effect is that it cleared the person that is the applicant as a prohibited immigrant and subject to deportation. My lord a copy of the flight record is attached which showed that the applicant did exit the country at 21:12:42 hours,” he said.
Miguna’s lawyers led by Siaya Senator James Orengo however protested the move and urged the court to summon both the Inspector General of Police Joseph Boinnet and CID Director George Kinoti to explain why they did not produce him as ordered.
“Citizenship by birth cannot be lost. Mr Miguna was born in Kisumu and what the Cabinet Secretary has done does not hold water,” Orengo said.
This comes after Miguna who has since confirmed his arrival in canada has vowed to take legal action aganst the the government and more so the interior CS who he says has totally disregarded the law in deporting him despite the fact that he had the dual citizenship of the two countries.
