The drama surrounding National Resistance Movement (NRM) self-declared general Miguna Miguna's re-entry into the country dragged on to Tuesday.
Miguna has reportedly ripped up application forms meant to regularize his Kenyan citizenship after Immigration authorities demanded he signs them.
Miguna, who is being detained at an undisclosed location within Jomo Kenyatta International Airport (JKIA) has insisted that he can't apply for citizenship because he is Kenyan by birth.
Acting Director of Immigration Services Joseph Munywoki had on Tuesday morning sent the application forms to the airport for him to fill them to have his citizenship restored.
Munywoki insisted that the firebrand lawyer lost his Kenyan citizenship in 1998 after acquiring a Canadian one, at a time when Kenyan Constitution didn't allow dual citizenship.
“To enable Miguna regularise his citizenship status, the Department of Immigration has dispatched the requisite application forms for Miguna to fill the process,” the statement read.
Miguna’s lawyers, led by Siaya Senator James Orengo, Otiende Amollo, Cliff Ombeta and Waikwa Wanyoike had not been allowed to access to their client by Tuesday afternoon.
Miguna said he wouldn't sign the documents, arguing that doing so would compromise the ongoing court case. His attorneys have also advised him against filling the forms since the High Court ruled he was a Kenyan citizen.
