What You Did Was Illegal, High Court Tells Government on Miguna’s Deportation


Miguna Miguna’s deportation to Canada is illegal according to the High Court.

In his ruling, Judge Luka Kimaru said that at the time the fiery lawyer was deported, IG Joseph Boinnet and DCI George Kinoti were in contempt of court orders. He also ordered the Director of Immigration Gordon Kihalangwa to surrender his revoked passport to the court within seven days.

On Monday, the outspoken lawyer had filed a suit at the High Court through veteran counsel John Khaminwa seeking to quash the deportation orders and reinstate his citizenship.

The case filed under a certificate of urgency lists seven respondents among them Interior Cabinet Secretary Fred Matiang’I, Director of Immigration Gordon Kihalangwa, Attorney General and officer in charge of flying squad Said Kiprotich.

Miguna welcomed the court ruling saying NRM and patriotic Kenyans will use the Constitution in fighting against injustices. “Kenyan patriots and freedom fighters believe in and are fully committed to the Rule of Law. We shall use the Constitution as the spear and the shield in the fight against the despots,” Miguna said in a tweet.
