Mombasa Governor Hassan Joho has lauded High court ruling that declared self-proclaimed National Resistance Movement (NRM) leader Miguna Miguna’s deportation illegal, null and void.
Speaking to journalists at the county offices in Mombasa on Thursday, Joho said that ruling is a big boost for NASA’s push for reforms and end to impunity.
He said that Miguna’s deportation was inhumane, adding that as NASA they will do everything to bring him back.
“The court ruling has shown how the Jubilee administration has been contravening the law and executing orders that infringe on the rights of innocent Kenyans,” he said.
Governor Joho asked Jubilee to obey the court order and have Miguna’s passport produced as directed by the court.
The ODM governor said that Jubilee will not succeed in stalling NASA' electoral reforms agenda through intimidation.
On Thursday, High Court Judge Luka Kimaru declared Miguna’s deportation illegal, null and avoid.
Judge Kimaru ordered Director of Immigration to deposit Miguna’s passport in court in the next seven days.
Miguna was arrested, detained and later deported for his role in Raila Odinga’s inauguration as the people’s president on January 30 at Uhuru Park.
The Canadian based lawyer deportation elicited condemnation with opposition politicians accusing them the government of contravening the law.
Miguna had vowed to fight his deportation saying that his rights were violated during his arrest, detention and deportation.
The government has said that it will appeal the court ruling that declared Miguna’s deportation illegal.
