Miguna Miguna

Kenyan authorities have detained and are trying to deport an opposition politician, who also holds Canadian nationality, in defiance of a court order letting him enter the country, his lawyer and a senior opposition member said on Tuesday.

"Miguna Miguna has gone on Emirates flight EK 722", Cliff Ombeta told Reuters by phone without giving details.

The move to re-deport Miguna to Dubai on Monday failed after he refused to board the Emirates plane he had been bundled in by police.

The lawyers were also kicked out of the airport as they tried to serve the Immigration Department with court orders.

President Uhuru Kenyatta's government launched a security crackdown after the legitimacy of his re-election in October was challenged by opposition leader Raila Odinga.

High court has ordered the release of National Resistance "General" Miguna Miguna after he was detained at JKIA.

The High Court in Kenya has summoned three senior government officials to explain the ongoing stalemate over the detention and citizenship status of opposition politician Dr. Miguna Miguna.

He remained there on Tuesday without access to his lawyer, Orengo said.

During the scuffle, journalists from the Daily Nation and two private TV stations were assaulted and left bleeding on the ground, according to video footage and one Nation journalist.

James Orengo, who was among the lawyers representing Miguna. "We just need him to follow the process like everybody else".

Mr Odinga said he and his colleagues were "contemplating" suing both groups for the role they played in last year's election - but that any legal action would take place outside of Kenya.

On Tuesday, Joseph Munywoki, Kenyan immigration services director, released a statement saying: "Miguna automatically lost his citizenship in 1998 when he acquired Canadian citizenship at a time when Kenya did not allow dual citizenship, instead of producing the requisite documents he had exited with from Canada".
