Exiled lawyer Miguna Miguna has rescheduled his homecoming date to a few days before his initial date citing popular demands.

He had earlier announced that he would be touching down at Jomo Kenyatta International Airport (JKIA) on Sunday, October 25, 2022.

In a late-night post on social media, the lawyer who was deported almost five years ago now says he will be arriving in the country on October 20, 2022.

"My homecoming arrival date and time have been changed by popular demand. Arrival: October 20, 2022, at 6.00 AM. See you at the JKIA, Patriots," he wrote.

The adjustment comes a day after his initial announcement and barely days after he was handed his Kenyan passport following efforts by the President.

According to the outspoken lawyer, he did not need to sign any documents as previously ordered for him to get the travel document.

“1687 days after Uhuru Kenyatta, @RailaOdinga, Fred Matiang'i, @Karanjakibicho and  @GKihalangwa CONSPIRED to SEIZE and DESTROYED my Kenyan Passport illegally, President  @WilliamsRuto has had a new one DELIVERED to me. Waiting for the LIFTING of RED ALERTS,” Miguna wrote on Twitter.

“I didn't have to sign the silly forms they were speaking about.”

In a past statement issued by Interior Cabinet Secretary Fred Matiang'i, retired President Uhuru Kenyatta's government had stated that Miguna was required to fill out a one-page document for citizenship re-registration, which would then allow him to return to the country.

Matiang'i, at the time, argued that the lawyer had lost his citizenship due to the requirements of the old constitution, which prohibited dual citizenship, claims which Miguna rubbished.

"You must fill out a piece of paper to regain your Kenyan passport or citizenship. There's a judgment by the court on this matter which prescribed clearly how you regain your citizenship," said Matiang'i in a media interview on  April 18, 2022.

He added: "There are court rulings in place by the high court on how you regain citizenship after you lost citizenship in the old constitution. Because in the old constitution you were not allowed to have dual citizenship.”
