• Miguna had announced he will fly back to Kenya on October 25 after departing Toronto, Canada on October 24.
• Miguna received his new passport on Wednesday, following a directive by President William Ruto.
As Kenya celebrates Mashujaa Day, Lawyer Miguna Miguna will be arriving in the country after almost five years of being in exile.
Initially, Miguna had announced he will fly back to Kenya on October 25 after departing Toronto, Canada on October 24.
The lawyer has however, changed the date to October 20, 2022 'due to public demand'.
"Arrival date and time have been changed by popular demand. Arrival: October 20, 2022 at 6.00 AM. See you at the JKIA, Patriots," Miguna said in a tweet.
The lawyer was first deported on February 6, 2018, and again on March 29, 2018 after he tried returning to Kenya.
Miguna received his new passport on Wednesday, following a directive by President William Ruto.
"1,687 days after Uhuru Kenyatta, Raila Odinga, Fred Matiang'i, Karanja kibicho and G Kihalangwa conspired to illegally seize and destroy my Kenyan Passport, President William Ruto has had a new one delivered to me. Waiting for the lifting of red alerts," he said.
He attempted to return to the country in November 2021 but there were red alerts barring his travel to any African country.
This prompted him to file a case seeking to have the alerts removed but the court dismissed it.
