BY JOAN WANJIKU,NAIROBI,17TH MAY 2018-Lawyer Miguna Miguna says he has no idea of the big talk everyone is talking about that of his nomination to be Nairobi county deputy governor.
Miguna said this on Thursday afternoon in response to reports that Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko chose him for the Deputy Governor post.
“Those are malicious distractions. That’s what I’m saying at this moment,” Miguna said in an SMS.
His sentiments comes just hours after National Assembly Majority Leader Aden Duale asked Sonko to drop Miguna and consult President Uhuru Kenyatta, who is the Jubilee Party boss
Sonko made the announcement in a letter to Speaker Beatrice Elachi on Wednesday, sparking conversation about how such a relationship would work and if Miguna, a lawyer, is what the capital needs.
Miguna vied for Nairobi Governor as an independent candidate and later declared himself the General of the National Resistance Movement, which was under the Opposition’s National Super Alliance.
His attempt to return in the country has hit a snag with government maintaining that he is no longer a kenyan citizen after he denounced his citizenship in the 90s.He was deported to Canada in February connection with helping Nasa principal Raila Odinga swear himself in as the People’s President.
He was expected to return on Wednesday May 16,but changed his position after the immigration department denied him passport.The immigration director Gordon Kihalangwa said Miguna must apply a fresh for his passport.
