The Government has refuted claims that lawyer Miguna Miguna has been denied entry into the country.According to Mwenda Njoka, spokesman for the Ministry of Interior and Coordination of National Government, said that Miguna declined to present the passport that he travelled with to immigration authorities.

“GoK has not denied Miguna Miguna entry into the country. Upon arrival at JKIA he was asked to present the passport he travelled in. He declined. It is a legal requirement & IATA regulation for travellers to show the documents they travelled in at the point of entry,” Njoka posted on Twitter.

Reports indicated that the fiery lawyer forced his way past JKIA’s immigration clearance area after a heated argument but was barred at the luggage area.

Miguna arrived at JKIA, Nairobi, after a six-week stay in Canada where he had been deported to.
