The government on Wednesday denied frustrating Miguna Miguna's return into the country.

In a press statement sent to newsrooms by the government Spokesperson Cyrus Oguna, Miguna's conduct is to blame for his woes.

"As government, we wish to clarify that following the incident at JKIA in March 2018, Dr.Miguna was categorised as an unruly passenger in line with Annex 17 of International Civil Authority (ICAO) standards," said Oguna in the statement.

According to Oguna, Miguna's 'unruly behaviour' has the potential to threaten the status A1 of the Jomo Kenyatta International Airport (JKIA).

Oguna further notes that the status of JKIA took the country a lot of effort to achieve and that it must be jealously protected.

As it turns, Miguna is attempting to travel without a valid passport which is against ICAO's regulations.

Miguna Miguna was deported in 2018 following a fallout with the authorities and he has been in Canada ever since.

Miguna's attempts to fly back to Kenya have been futile as the state maintains its 'cooperation' in having Miguna back.

On Monday, High Court judge Weldon Korir prohibited the state from interfering in any way whatsoever with Miguna Miguna’s entry into Kenya.

“An order is hereby issued directing the Registrar of the High Court to release to Miguna’s lawyer or an authorized officer of the Kenya National Commission on Human Rights (KNCHR) the copy of his Kenya Passport currently under the custody of the Court for the use by Immigration Officers in his identification as a citizen of Kenya,” ordered Justice Korir.

On January 8, Air France removed Miguna from his flight scheduled to fly him to Kenya.

Miguna's last three days have been full of frustrations as he tries to enter his motherland.

Two airlines, Air France and Lufthansa refused to board him to their planes insisting that there was a red alert against him.
