Exiled Kenyan lawyer Miguna Miguna will land in Kenya on the morning of October 20, 2022. 

The Canada-based Kenyan had earlier indicated that he'll arrive at 8:20pm on October 25, 2022.

"Wow, fellow Kenyans. I'll see if I can change my arrival time to morning. I didn't realise it was going to be such a huge issue. But because hundreds of you have made it an issue, I'll try and accommodate you. Except that you won't pay for the change of my flight details," he wrote on social media. 

With the change in date and time, he announced: "See you at the JKIA, Patriots."

The solicitor and barrister who is a fiery critic of the former administration of President Uhuru Kenya and his 'handshake partner' Raila Odinga returns to his motherland after nearly five years of forced exile. 

New Passport

On September 20, Miguna announced that he had received a new Passport. He said the only hurdle in his quest to return home was the red alerts issued against him by the immediate former administration. 

Miguna was abducted from his house in Runda, Nairobi, and detained at the Githunguri Police Station in Kiambu County on February 2, 2018. It was soon after he had 'sworn in' Raila as the 'People's President' at Uhuru Park, Nairobi.  

Four days later, he was hounded out of the country, with chaotic scenes being witnessed at the Jomo Kenyatta International airport.

When President William Ruto won the elections last August, leaders close to him announced that Miguna would be given back his rights as a Kenyan citizen.

"Dr Miguna Miguna will soon have back his right to the full enjoyment of his birthright including unrestricted entry/exit to his motherland. The right to dual citizenship shall not be applied selectively!" Moses Wetangula, National Assembly Speaker, had announced.
