National Resistance Movement leader, Miguna Miguna, is on a mission, and it begun even before he set his foot in Canada, his second home.

Miguna has been on everyone’s lips the whole of this week, and the drama ended with his deportation, but the unshaken lawyer turned politician is headed to the courts to fight the government.

The budding politician is accused of among other things, treason, after he presided over a meeting where National Super Alliance head, Raila Odinga, was installed as the “people’s president”.

The government has come out to justify its decision to eject the fiery activist out of the country, explaining via Interior ministry that he had renounced his Kenyan citizenship and acquired Canadian nationality but Mr Miguna insists he is Kenyan and more importantly, he will be back on the Kenyan soil.

“I will challenge all the illegal and unconditional actions by the despots in court starting today,” he said using his favourite description of UhuRuto.

Adding, “I have instructed a battery of competent advocates to ensure that the ongoing rogue purveyors of impunity are brought to book. They are not above the law, even though they behave as if they are.”

The courts will now have to decide on the issue of Miguna’s dual-citizenship, and more urgently, whether he qualifies after it emerged he was granted his Canadian passport back when one was not allowed to pledge alliance to two states.
