The decision by Immigration Department to allow and facilitate exiled lawyer Miguna Miguna’s return came after a series of phone calls between President Uhuru, Raila Odinga and the Immigration Department heads. Miguna was already spoiling for a fight and drama at the JKIA.
Both President Uhuru Kenyatta and Raila Odinga were advised against any move that would give the controversial lawyer any limelight like he wanted. There were also growing concerns on how denying Miguna Miguna entry would taint the ongoing reconciliation efforts by the two leaders.
On the other hand, Raila Odinga’s handlers were for unconditional return of the self declared General given the pivotal role he played in the swearing in of Raila on January 30th 2018. It is out of this that both Uhuru and Raila came to consensus to allow Miguna in.
With the latest move from Immigration Department, Miguna Miguna has been played in his own game.
