Lawyer Miguna has revealed that President William Ruto has expressed his regret about 2018 deportation of him to Canada,
On behalf of himself and the administration, Miguna accepted the President's apologies earlier in the day, according to a statement he released on Saturday.
"Earlier this morning, President William Ruto, the President of the Republic of Kenya and Commander in Chief of the Defence Forces, apologized to me on his behalf and on behalf of the Government for the violence imposed upon me by the former administration." He stated.
"I accept the apology."
The apology, according to former IEBC Commissioner Roselyn Akombe, was long overdue, and no Kenyan should ever experience similar treatment.
"Though long delayed, it's wonderful that it finally happened. No human being ever should experience what Daktari Miguna Miguna did "She spoke.
Miguna was pushed into exile in March 2018 and prevented from entering after the Jubilee government issued red alerts against him, making it hard for him to travel.
He wasn't able to fly back to Kenya until October 2022, when Ruto's directive to the Kwanza administration in Kenya made it possible.
"President should apologize to Miguna for his deportation by the Jubilee administration, in which he served as Deputy President," Narc Kenya leader Martha Karua said in 2022.
What transpired, according to Karua, was a terrible error and an atrocity committed by the Kenyan government, of which the present President was a content Deputy President at the time.
"He cannot separate himself from that behavior," she said.
