Embattled National Resistance Movement (NRM) Kenya leader Dr Miguna Miguna has stated the one condition he wants fulfilled for him to return to Kenya.

The outspoken lawyer on Monday said he is ready to jet back to Kenya anytime but only after the state has returned his confiscated passport which the High Court has ordered to be returned to him.

In a tweet from Canada where he was deported to early in 2018, Miguna maintains he is a Kenyan and the decision by the Immigration Department to cancel his travel document on grounds that he is not Kenyan was done in contravention of the law.

"Some people keep asking, 'Miguna, when are you coming back?' I am ready to come to Kenya immediately, however, to do that, I need my valid Kenyan passport, which the High Court has ordered should be returned or issued to me unconditionally but the despots have not given me," he said.

The former Nairobi gubernatorial aspirant's passport was canceled by the Immigration Department on orders from Interior Cabinet Secretary Dr Fred Matiang'i following the controversial swearing-in of opposition leader Raila Odinga.

The lawyer was among NASA leaders who oversaw Raila's inauguration, an event that calumniated in arrests of key opposition personalities including Ruaraka MP Tom Kajwang' and his Makadara counterpart George Aladwa.
