Gatundu South Member of Parliament, Moses Kuria, on Thursday revealed the only mistake Jubilee administration made during the deportation of self-proclaimed general of the outlawed National Resistance Movement (NRM) Miguna Miguna.
In a Facebook post seen by Kenyans.co.ke, the lawmaker noted that President Uhuru Kenyatta‘s government should have deported more than just one NASA leader among those who participated in the illegal inauguration ceremony of Raila Odinga.
Citing what happened after the April 2017 coup attempt in Turkey, Kuria highlighted that “someone in Kenya is sleeping in their job.”
“After the April 2017 coup attempt in Turkey, the government of Tayipp Erdogan jailed 47, 155 and banished the coup leader Fethullah into exile,” Kuria mentioned.
According to Kuria, the government should, therefore, have punished more leaders by deporting them.
Miguna Miguna was deported on Tuesday evening to Canada following a High Court order to have the Opposition politician released from police custody.
The outspoken legislator, on Wednesday, produced a document as evidence that he allegedly warned the NASA leader regarding the illegalities of Miguna Miguna’s citizenship.
In the letter, the Party of National Unity (PNU) leadership, through Kuria who was the spokesman, had written a letter to Odinga while he served as the Prime Minister questioning Miguna’s work as a public officer in his office without the relevant permits to live and work in Kenya.
Kuria argued that despite being born in Kenya, the NRM leader became a citizen of Canada and given that the country did not permit dual citizenship at the time, he ceased to hold Kenyan citizenship.
“Kenya’s current Constitution does not provide for dual nationality, and it is illegal to obtain and carry two passports.
“Like all other expatriates working in the country, our laws require that Mr Miguna apply for and obtain the relevant permits to live and work in Kenya,” the statement read.
