- 16th November 2021. The day former Chief Justice Willy Mutunga says he will bring exiled Kenyan lawyer Miguna Miguna back to his motherland.
- Mutunga says he will personally travel to Toronto, Canada, to accompany Miguna on his flight back to Kenya.
Canadian-based Kenyan lawyer Miguna Miguna now says that the Jubilee Government feared he could lead an effective resistance in 2018.
According to Miguna, the government exiled him from the country because he could not be swayed easily and be cowed into abandoning his fight for electoral justice.
“I’m not a coward; I’m different from Raila Odinga. They knew I will not be compromised and that is why they are afraid of me. That is why they saw it fit to themselves to deport me,” he said during an interview with KTN News on Wednesday.
The fiery lawyer accuses ODM Leader Raila Odinga of “being bribed into a handshake with President Uhuru Kenyatta and working with an illegitimate government.”
Miguna swears in Raila
And when asked why he broke the law when he swore in Raila as the ‘people’s president’ on January 30, 2018, the legal practitioner insisted that he did not break any law in the process.
“There is no law that I broke when I swore in Raila Odinga as ‘people’s president’. If I broke a law, what you do is get a warrant of arrest, come to Miguna, serve him with the warrant telling him when he should appear in court. Then you allow him to defend himself. Did they [the State] do that? No, they didn’t. The High Court ruled there was no illegality in me swearing in Odinga,” the tough-talking lawyer opined.
