Miguna has accused immigration officials of holding him a “tiny, filthy room” at the airport/CFM

, NAIROBI, Kenya, Mar 28 – Controversial lawyer Miguna Miguna is still being detained at the Jomo Kenyatta International Airport (JKIA) where he is accusing authorities of confining him to a tiny and filthy room that is poorly ventilated.

It remains unclear if the Immigration Department will honour a High Court order that he be presented in court Wednesday morning following an application by his lawyers.

Justice Roselyn Aburili has given the order in response to an application filed by Miguna through his legal counsels John Khaminwa and Nelson Havi.

In the application, Miguna was apprehensive that there are plans to kick him out of the country again, in total violation of an earlier court order that allowed him in the country because he is a Kenyan.

On successfully obtaining the orders sought, he was directed to serve them on the respondents listed and who are Interior Cabinet Secretary Fred Matiangi, Inspector General of Police and Immigration Services.

The standoff made it to the floor of the Parliament after Nominated Senator Beatrice Kwamboka demanded a comprehensive statement from Matiangi to explain why Miguna’s re-entry into the country is being frustrated.
