Impasse over lawyer Miguna Miguna’s return to Kenya persists at Jomo Kenyatta International Airport in Nairobi as his lawyer Cliff Ombeta says he will not fill citizenship forms issued by the Immigration department.
Mr Ombeta on Tuesday said his client would not apply for Kenyan citizenship afresh “because it would mean that Miguna will be agreeing that the government was right about his citizenship.”
He called on the government to respect High Court order that allowed Dr Miguna back into Kenya after his illegal deportation to Canada.
“He should be allowed to enter Kenya on the strength of the court order,” Mr Ombeta told journalists at JKIA.
The High Court, he argued, ordered the government to facilitate the lawyer’s return and “give him documents”, not apply for new ones.
