The return of firebrand lawyer Miguna Miguna has suffered a major setback after the High Court declined to lift red alerts issued by the Kenyan government on two airlines.

Miguna, through his lawyers, had moved to court to have the red alerts lifted to enable him travel back to the country.

High Court judge Hedwing Ong'undi stated that Miguna's team did not prove that their client has been blocked from returning to Kenya.

Miguna had stated, under a certificate of urgency, that due to the said alerts, Lufhansa and Air France airlines have barred him from boarding their aircrafts to Kenya.

"It is lawful and just that the red alerts issued by the Attorney General and Fred Matiang'i to the two airlines or any other airline be lifted to enable me travel to Kenya," he said.

Miguna has already booked an air ticket to travel from Canada via Germany and France to land in Kenya on November 16, 2021.
