Miguna Miguna is camped at the Tegel Airport in Berlin, Germany after the Lufthansa flight he was to board to Nairobi left him.

A picture posted on his Twitter page showed the controversial lawyer still seated at the airport with his luggage, hours after the plane had left.

“I’m still at the TXL airport in Berlin. Lufthansa has stated that it is ready to transport me to Kenya when the RED ALERT has been formally cancelled or withdrawn by the illegitimate Government of Kenya. But as of now, despite lies peddled via social media and press statements, the RED ALERT has not been cancelled,” the post on Twitter reads.

Miguna was expected to land at the Jomo International Airport on Tuesday at 9:25pm.

However, as of 2pm on Tuesday, there was no still no communication from the ministry.

“I’m exploring all my options. I’ll communicate when and how I will travel to Kenya later today or tomorrow,” Miguna said.
