Former Gichugu Member of Parliament Barua Njogu has alleged that the controversial United States of America-based Kenyan lawyer Miguna Miguna should deal with former prime minister Raila Odinga in Nyanza region first, after arriving from Canada.
Njogu argued that Kenyan authorities should not have proscribed Miguna from getting into the country. In his observation, the barrister was a Kenyan citizen who enjoyed rights like his counterparts in the country. He asserted that the lawyer was a Kenyan by birth.
"There was no reason why Miguna was banned from entering this country because he is a Kenyan. He has to deal with Raila Odinga first in the Luo Nyanza," Barua Njogu.
This comes hours after Miguna landed in Kenya from Canada where he had been for more than four years. He was deported to Canada in 2018 by government authorities following his precedence on controversial swearing in of Raila Odinga as people's president in the same year at Uhuru Park, Nairobi.
Besides Miguna, Ruaraka MP Tom Joseph Kajwang (TJ Kajwang) were among lawyers who swore in Raila. The legislator was arrested and later released.
Raila was controversially sworn in after he boycotted the 2017 repeat presidential election called by Supreme Court of Kenya. The court had nullified the August 2017 presidential polls on account of illegalities and irregularities committed by Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC).
The case had been filed by the defunct National Super Alliance (NASA) coalition. The political outfit argued that the ex-president Uhuru Kenyatta was not validly elected as pronounced by the electoral body.
