The High Court on Tuesday ordered the state to file its response on lawyer Miguna Miguna's deportation case within two days.
Justice Chacha Mwita also directed Miguna's lawyers to file their affidavits before mid day February 16 so that the inter-party hearing can commence on Friday afternoon.
The court issued the orders after Charles Mutinda; a representative from the Attorney General's office noted he had been served with the documents late on Monday evening and had not completed working on the response.
“Give us time we file papers, we will abide by the directions of this court we will respond as soon as possible so that the court can make its decision,” Mutinda was quoted by Citizen Digital.
The directive was issued after Miguna moved to go court to challenge his deportation to Canada last week.
Through his lawyer John Khaminwa, Miguna argued that he is a Kenyan citizen by birth and as such his citizenship cannot be quashed.
The vocal lawyer wants the court to issue orders compelling the state to allow Miguna back into the country and restore his citizenship.
Miguna also wants the court to quash a gazette notice that declared the National Resistance Movement (NRM) an outlawed sect.
