Lawyer Miguna Miguna claims he has been blocked from flying to Kenya

Controversial lawyer Miguna Miguna has claimed that he has been blocked from boarding a connecting flight to Nairobi from Germany, due to a red alert issued by the Kenya government when he was deported in 2018.

In a tweet, the self-proclaimed National Resistant Movement (NRM) General said he was stopped by Lufthansa airline officials boarding the flight to Nairobi.

“I am at the Lufthansa Check-In and they are saying the Kenyan security has blocked me from entering Kenya,” Miguna tweeted.

On Tuesday, the Kenyan Immigration Department announced it would honor a court order to facilitate Miguna’s entry.

Miguna further claimed that the Kenyan government had “demanded that Lufthansa should not fly him into any other African country, either.

“Lufthansa flight manager is saying that the Government of Kenya must send official communication to Lufthansa at Frankfurt office before I can be allowed to fly to Kenya or any other African country,” he said.

Miguna was deported over the swearing-in of NASA leader Raila Odinga, which he presided over at Uhuru Park, following a repeat Presidential election in which Uhuru Kenyatta was declared the winner.
