In Summary

  • Matiang'i, in his affidavit, claims that the orders sought by Miguna’s lawyers cannot stand in law.
  • I was never party of the proceedings, I have never been issued with any order neither personally nor by substituted service to date.
  • Justice Chacha will rule on February 23.

Interior Cabinet Secretary Fred Matiang’i has asked the court to dismiss a case challenging the deportation of politician Miguna Miguna saying that he was never served with any court orders.

Matiang’i, in his affidavit, claims that the orders sought by Miguna’s lawyers cannot stand in law.

“Joshua Miguna Miguna lost his citizenship by operation of law upon acquiring his Canadian citizenship,” the CS said in an affidavit.

He further says that he was informed by the Director of Immigration Gordon Khilangwa that the courts have held before that Kenyans who became foreign citizens before the 2010 Constitution came into effect, got back into the country and obtained Kenyan identification documents cannot claim citizenship using the court process as that would amount to abuse of the legal process.

“I was never party of the proceedings, I have never been issued with any order neither personally nor by substituted service to date. I have never obtained nor received any order directing me to do or refrain from doing anything,” adds The CS.

Justice Chacha will rule on February 23.
