His woes began when he took part in the mock swearing-in of Opposition leader Raila Odinga on January 2018 after which he declared himself the general of the outlawed National Resistance Movement.
He unsuccessfully tried to return to the country on March 26, 2018. Another attempt aborted after Air France declined to fly him over a red alert issued by the government.
