KENYA: Govt refutes claims that Miguna was denied entry
“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.
