Vice President William Ruto has promised that exiled lawyer Miguna Miguna will be allowed to return to Kenya if he becomes the 5th president.
In an interview with Voice of America, Ruto stated that Miguna did not commit an offense in order to prevent his return to his homeland.
He said if the exiled lawyer violated the law, he should be prosecuted in Kenya.
Huyo Miguna Miguna tutamrejesha nyumbani mara moja…kwa sababu ni Mkenya, hana hatia yeyote….na hata kama ako na hatia yeyote, aletwe nyumbani kuna sheria ambayo atakabiliana nayo. Mimi sioni haja ya kuwa na wakimbizi wa kutoka nchi zingine Kenya na tuko na mmoja wetu mkenya amefanywa mkimbizi kule Canada.
(We will return Miguna Miguna back home because he is a Kenyan, he has no offence…and if he has one, he should be brought home and be charged according to the law. I do not see the need of having refugees in our country yet our own has been made a refugee in Canada),” he said.
Last year Miguna Maiguna made an attempt to fly back to Kenya but his trip was cut short in Germany. He was not allowed to board a flight to Nairobi at the Berlin Brandenburg Airport. The controversial lawyer was deported in February 2018.
