Controversial lawyer and revolutionary Miguna Miguna is stranded at Brandenburg Airport in Berlin when he was en route to Kenya.


Miguna who widely publicised his homecoming had his ambitions curtailed after Air France officials at the check counter informed him that the Kenyan government has issued a ‘red alert’ on Monday morning.

Therefore, the airline could not fly Miguna to Nairobi.


He took to his social media accounts to share the mishap that had befallen him.

“This is to inform Kenyans and the world that @airfrance officials at the check-in counter at the Berlin Brandenburg Airport have just informed me that the Government of Kenya sent them a "red Alert" this morning that they cannot fly me to Nairobi. I'm waiting for a copy,” he wrote.

Miguna also shared the document that was given to him by Air France. However, he claims the airline did not offer him any further explanations for the ‘red alert’.

“Here is the document @airfrance has given me. They have refused to state "Red Alert." But they have indicated that it is obvious and they empathize with me but that there is nothing they can do. Let our legal team get to work. Thanks everyone for the support. Aluta Continua,” he said in another tweet.

Miguna’s homecoming now hangs in the balance, as it is now not clear when or if he will be in the country.

The Kenyan High Court had declined to lift the red alerts allegedly issued by the Kenyan government, barring Miguna from travelling into the country on account of zero evidence showing that indeed Miguna has been stopped from coming into the country.


Justice Hedwig Ong’udi further challenged Miguna to show that the ‘red flag’ exists as the burden of proof remains with him.

"There is no evidence to prove the alerts exist. This court cannot rule on speculation to grant the orders he is seeking. Case dismissed," said Hedwig.


"Court being a Court of law expected him to adduce evidence to prove the existence of the red alerts,” added Hedwig.

Miguna Miguna was deported from Kenya on February 6, 2018, after administering an oath to Raila Odinga after the contested 2017 election.

Miguna holds a Canadian passport and according to him, he never renounced his Kenyan citizenship. 

Even though the current constitution allows for dual citizenship, Miguna is required to apply for and obtain relevant documents to live and work in Kenya. Miguna argues he is Kenyan by birth.
