Miguna managed to produce his passport to facilitate his travel, the same passport he failed to produce at JKIA before he was deported.

Miguna was deported to Dubai on Thursday last week after a major scuffle at the airport after he declined to produce his Canadian passport.

On his social media page, Miguna lauded the UAE government for facilitating his medical checkup.

Miguna has however accused NASA leader Raila Odinga of ignoring his plight saying he is suffering due to his support of the opposition leader yet he has failed to intervene and resolve the matter.

Elsewhere, a human rights activist in Kisumu city went on a hunger strike in a desperate bid to pressurize the government to comply with court orders issued to facilitate the return of Miguna Miguna to Kenya.

For the third day, Boniface Akumu kept vigil at Kondele round about, not only to root for the return of the fiery lawyer but also to promote peaceful protests in a region known for violent protests.
