Exiled fiery lawyer Miguna Miguna has come out guns brazing defending the ongoing funds drive for his anticipated homecoming celebrations on October 20, 2022 from Canada.
Social media has been awash with the debate after an online flyer was widely circulated soliciting for donations for this event and appealing to Kenyans to contribute towards his homecoming.
The flyer was received with skepticism by some Kenyans online, who reached out to the lawyer to confirm its authenticity.
In a quick rejoinder, Miguna clarified that he only associates with “people of integrity” and that the fundraisers are not conmen.
“They are not conmen. They are honest Kenyans trying to raise funds legally from those willing to give freely in order to accord me the homecoming they are planning. There is nothing dishonest about that. I only associate with people of integrity. And this is integrity,” he Tweeted on Saturday.
The Canadian based barrister who was forced out of the country and his passport confiscated and cancelled by the Kenyan government said he will land at the Jomo Kenyatta International Airport (JKIA) at 6am.
This after he finally received his passport, ending his 5-year long woes since his deportation to Canada in 2018 after participating in the mock swearing-in of opposition leader Raila Odinga as the ‘People’s President’ at Uhuru Park.
He is also a self-proclaimed ‘General’ of the proscribed National Resistance Movement (NRM).
Miguna confirmed President William Ruto instructed processing of his new passport which he said has since been delivered to him.
