The Kenya National Human Rights Commission has written to the immigration department seeking the facilitation of safe return of controversial lawyer Miguna Miguna.
The rights body wants the immigration officials to provide the outspoken lawyer, who was ejected out of the country, with the Kenyan passport and an air ticket for his expected return next week.
Miguna was deported out of the country for the second time in March by the state over alleged non-compliance with immigration procedures.
Having been away for almost two months, the outspoken lawyer has indicated that he wants to return to the country next week.
The commission wants the immigration department to provide the necessary travel documents in time for his return.
Meanwhile, Kisumu central MP Ken Ouda says Rift valley MPs should stop issuing ultimatums to President Uhuru Kenyatta on 2022 succession and instead leave him to concentrate on the Building Bridges initiative spearheaded by the head of state and NASA leader Raila Odinga.
Machakos governor Alfred Mutua has in the meantime launched a 50 million shillings program to replace all grass thatched houses across his county with iron sheets.
By launching the program, Mutua said he was committed to uplifting the living standards of his people to enable them live in dignity.
