Self-proclaimed NRM general Miguna Miguna

has said he will return to the country on May 16.

This will be his second attempt to

return to the country after his second deportation in March.

In a tweet on Saturday, the controversial lawyer revealed that he will land at the Jomo Kenyatta International Airport (JKIA) on May 16.

“I AM RETURNING TO KENYA ON MAY 16, 2018. I am a Kenyan citizen by birth. The High Court has ordered Fred Matiangi, GKihalangwa, JBoinnet and Kinoti 13 times to issue me with a valid Kenyan passport and facilitate my return to Kenya as a Kenyan unconditionally,”read the tweet.

On March 30, Miguna's return was thwarted by the Immigration Department after he refused

to present his travel documents for clearance at JKIA.

Miguna’s troubles began after his participation in the swearing-in of opposition Chief Raila Odinga as the people’s president at Uhuru Park on January 30, 2018.

In his botched return, the outspoken NRM leader Miguna claimed in several posts that he was drugged and shipped to Dubai unconscious.

“I woke up in Dubai and the despots are here insisting that I must travel on to London. I’m sick. My ribs and body are hurting all over. This is a travesty of justice,” he wrote on his Facebook page.

The government argues that Miguna, who holds Canadian nationality, automatically lost his Kenyan citizenship by birth, which he has denied.

The Immigration department maintains that the outspoken city lawyer has to reapply for the Kenyan citizenship that he lost in 1998.
