Lawyer Miguna Miguna will not arrive in the country on Tuesday, November 16 as he had announced.

This is after the Kenyan government on Monday reportedly issued a fresh red alert to Air France which Miguna had planned to board from Germany’s capital Berlin.

Taking to Twitter, Miguna said: “This is to inform Kenyans and the world that @airfrance officials at the check-in counter at the Berlin Brandenburg Airport have just informed me that the Government of Kenya sent them a “red Alert” this morning that they cannot fly me to Nairobi. I’m waiting for a copy.”

“They have refused to state “Red Alert.” But they have indicated that it is obvious and they empathize with me but that there is nothing they can do. Let our legal team get to work. Thanks, everyone for the support. Aluta Continua,” he added.

Lawyer Miguna had earlier vowed to travel back to Kenya despite the High Court decision declining to lift red alerts blocking his smooth travel.

In a statement on Friday 12th November, he declared that he will not hesitate to travel saying that he already has a valid court order.“I will proceed with my journey as previously communicated and in accordance with Justice Chacha Mwita’s Order of December 14, 2018, and Justice Weldon Korir’s Order of January 6, 2020,” read the statement.

Miguna went further to state that he will not grow faint of fighting for his Kenyan rights saying that even if he is barred from flying into the country he would go back to court.

“If I am blocked again, the matter will return to court. If not, see you soon. Viva!” he exclaimed.

Miguna Miguna was first deported in February 2018 after taking part in the swearing-in of ODM leader Raila as the ‘People’s President’ at Uhuru Park on January 30, 2018. He holds dual citizenship for Kenya and Canada, where he was deported.
