The country’s Attorney General (AG) Kihara Kariuki has been served with a court order to present himself to court on Monday 13 January to give an explanation why Court orders allowing the self-proclaimed lawyer Miguna Miguna’s back to Kenya has been defied.
Judge John Mativo’s Friday 10 ruling in the exiled lawyer return case that has been marred with drama, said the government was suppressing democracy by going against the court of law orders.
The government, however, had no representation in the court when the case started but the state lawyer Christopher Marwa appeared later explaining the state was not aware Miguna’s return case was happening on 10 January.
In states defense, Marwa told the court the state have not disobeyed court orders, further explaining that Miguna’s passport has expired and he is supposed apply for a new one.
Marwa quickly said Miguna can travel with his Canadian passport to travel back to Kenya.
Miguna’s lawyer John Khaminwa suggested that AG or any other senior representative should appear in court on Monday arguing Marwa is too junior handle the matter.
On Tuesday 7 January when the Canadian based lawyer was to get back in the country, the government changed tune after Miguna’s return was marred with drama to an extent he was blocked him from into two airlines in Germany.
High Court judge Weldon Korir on Monday 6 January ordered the state to facilitate Miguna’s return without any conditions which he restated in yesterday’s ruling.
The government spokesperson Cyrus Oguna, however, claims allowing Miguna into the country without valid documents will amount to international aviation regulations breach.
Oguna also added that the controversial lawyer was categorised as an unruly passenger in line with International Civil Aviation Organisation standards.
