Exiled Kenyan lawyer Miguna Miguna has rescheduled his homecoming date a day after announcing his return.
Miguna changed the date to October 20, 2022 ‘due to public demand’.
“Arrival date and time have been changed by popular demand. Arrival: October 20, 2022 at 6.00 AM. See you at the JKIA, Patriots,” Miguna said in a tweet.
Miguna, who was deported to Canada five years ago by the government on February 7, 2018, Thursday announced on his Twitter account that he will be landing at the Jomo Kenyatta International Airport (JKIA) from Toronto, Canada at 8.20 pm.
“After nearly 5 years of forced BARBARIC EXILE, I’m returning home. Departing from Toronto: October 24, 2022” he said.
Miguna received his new passport on Wednesday, following a directive by the Government of Kenya.
The staunch supporter of President William Ruto administration on Tuesday revealed he had been facilitated to get a new Kenyan passport.
He then posted a photo of the passport as proof that all is set for the much-awaited travel adding that he was only waiting for the lifting of red alerts barring him from boarding planes to Kenya.
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.
