Controversial lawyer Miguna Miguna on Tuesday night announced that he had finally received his Kenyan passport nearly five years after he was forced into exile in Canada.

According to Miguna, President William Ruto had made good his promise to ensure the processing of his Kenyan passport would be fast tracked to pave way for his return home.

The lawyer, who also possesses a Canadian citizenship, claims he did not sign any form of documentation as had been previously demanded for his passport to be processed.

“1687 days after Uhuru Kenyatta, @RailaOdinga, Fred Matiang'i, @Karanjakibicho and @GKihalangwa CONSPIRED to illegally SEIZE and DESTROYED my Kenyan Passport, President @WilliamsRuto has had a new one DELIVERED to me. Waiting for the LIFTING of RED ALERTS,” wrote Miguna on Twitter on Tuesday night.

He added: “I didn't have to sign the silly forms they were speaking about.”

He had recently revealed that Dr Ruto had guaranteed him he would assist him to regain his travel documentation to allow his safe return to Kenya from his Toronto, Canada abode.

While barring his return, the previous administration had faulted Miguna for refusing to fill a citizenship re-registration document that would help facilitate his travel back to Kenya.

Interior CS Fred Matiang'i said he lost his citizenship while in exile in Canada following the promulgation of a new constitution in 2010 as the old order didn’t permit dual nationality.

The position by Matiang’i was rejected by Miguna, who termed as illegal the actions taken against him by Kenya government, including issuing of red alerts to international airlines.
