A drama was on weekend witnessed at the Jomo Kenyatta International Airport (JKIA) after ODM Party Executive Director Oduor Ongwen was on Saturday stopped at the JKIA as he tried traveling out of the country.
Taking to social media on his official Twitter handle, the ODM boss divulged that the management of the facility blocked him from travelling outside the Country following his participation in Raila Odinga’s Uhuru park coronation.
Little known to Oduor Ong’wen was the fact that his passport details had been circulated and earmarked for suspension following his role in the mock swearing-in of the ODM leader Raila Odinga at Uhuru park.
”I have been stopped from travelling out of the country because my passport was suspended in 2018 for my role in organizing the swearing in of @RailaOdinga and People’s Assembly. I’m more bemused than annoyed,”’ the ODM Executive Director tweeted.
The ODM leader was sworn-in on January 2018 as the People’s President following a bungled election at the end of 2017 where president Uhuru Kenyatta was later declared the winner after a boycotted repeat after the supreme court had nullified the original results.
Ruaraka Member of Parliament Tom Kajwang administered the oath as the chief justice at the podium in an event that attracted thousands of Odinga supporters.
Following the development a high court ruling was delivered in November for the treason charge leveled against TJ Kajwang’ in which the court directed that the January 2018 event was not illegal and that no Kenyan should be arrested or prosecuted for it.
”From the content of the oath, Hon Raila Odinga swore himself to the office of the people’s president which does not amount to any crime. He would have only breached the law if he swore himself as the president of the Republic of Kenya,” the November 2018 ruling reads in part.
The move would later see Miguna Miguna deported to Canada in April 2018 after his pivotal role in administering the oath.
