Embattled lawyer Miguna Miguna has lashed at President Uhuru Kenyatta and ODM leader Raila Odinga for having a hand in the RED ALERTS stopping his journey back to Kenya.

On Tuesday, the lawyer was stopped from jetting back to the country after the state issued a red alert to Lufthansa flight.

Miguna was then required to travel by Air France flight and land at JKIA at 9:45 am Wednesday, but he was forced to alight moment after boarding the flight, with the flight management citing alert order from the government of Kenya.

And now the self-proclaimed National Resistant Movement (NRM) leader took to social media on Wednesday, scolding the president and the opposition leader.

“These are targeted RED ALERTS. Uhuru Kenyatta has issued blanket RED ALERTS against all airlines and flights to Kenya. The RED ALERTS are not "old" or "2018 alerts." Despot Kenyatta compels all airlines to send him lists of passengers before flights depart in order to stop me,” said Miguna.

He added that, “Uhuru Kenyatta issued a RED ALERT against Lufthansa at 6 p.m. on January 6, 2020 and threatened not to allow its flights to land in Kenya if Lufthansa transports me to Kenya. He issued the RED ALERT against Air France AFTER I had taken my seat and the plane was about to depart.”

“When anyone occupying public office in trust for the citizens of a country use that office and the powers vested in it to abuse, brutalize, torture and violate the rights and freedoms of any citizen or group of citizens, it is the DUTY of each citizen to bring him to account,” said the lawyer.

Miguna said that Uhuru Kenyatta has not FACILIATED “my return and UNCONDITIONAL entry into Kenya as ORDERED by the High Court. He has refused to issue me with or return my valid Kenyan Passport as ORDERED by the Court. His agents have not paid the damages and fines as ORDERED.”

“Fellow Kenyans: Let us be honest and admit the obvious fact that the person violating my rights and preventing me from entering Kenya in defiance of numerous court orders is Uhuru Kenyatta - urged on by Raila Odinga. Uhuru Kenyatta has not complied with any court order. None.”

He goes on to say that IATA rules do not allow airlines to cancel flights of passengers based on "red alerts" by countries. States have no power over passengers or foreign air carriers. States only control ADMISSION into or EXITS out of their countries. Citizens have a right to enter or exit at will.

This comes even as the lawyer files another application seeking to compel the State to allow his return to Kenya, with Justice Weldon Korir set to hear the matter on Friday.

“As a first step and to ensure compliance: The rogue State should be ordered to purchase air tickets and issue a valid Kenyan passport for me and then bear the cost of two of my lawyers and two officers from @HakiKNCHR to travel to where I am and accompany me back to Kenya,” twitted Miguna.
