Miguna Receives a Rousing Welcome in Canada

When the plane carrying Dr. Miguna Miguna landed at Lester B. Pearson International Airport, Toronto at 4.45 PM (local time), tens of Kenyans were already waiting to receive the self-declared "NRM General" 

The Kenyans were eager to know how Miguna was holding up after spending five days in detention and another two while on transit after deportation.

"We want to know that you are safe, we feared that you were dead when we could not get communication from you," posed a woman who was filming the reception on Facebook Live.

"I am alive, it is not easy to kill a revolutionist," replied Miguna.

When asked if he had a message for President Uhuru Kenyatta and Interior CS Fred Matiangi, Miguna replied:

"Come baby, come," eliciting laughter among crowds of supporters.

Dr. Miguna was arrested on Friday last week at his Runda home before being detained for five days and subsequently being deported in contravention on several court orders by Justice Luka Kimaru of the High Court.

Yesterday, the judge gave the Immigration Director Dr. Gordon Kihalangwa up to Friday to explain the circumstances surrounding the deportation of the Nasa activist while he was "in custody of the court."

“He must swear an affidavit to indicate under what circumstances he assumed the custody of the applicant (Miguna) when he knew that he was under the custody of the court awaiting his release,” the judge directed.
