Exiled lawyer Miguna Miguna has said if humbling himself means yielding to impunity and injustice, then he rejects it.

This follows numerous calls by a section of Kenyans asking him to tone done on his call for justice as he seeks to return to the country.

In a post seen by Nairobi Leo, Miguna went on to say that if it also means accepting to be called a foreigner in a country he was born in, then he will not do it.

“If humbling myself means surrendering to impunity and injustice, I REJECT it. If it means cowering in fear at the sight of despots, I DEFY it. If it means accepting to be branded a foreigner in my own country of birth when I am not, I will RESIST it FOREVER,” said the lawyer.

His post came hours after he said that he does not need any favour from President Uhuru Kenyatta to return to the country.

Miguna insisted that obeying court orders and respecting his rights as a Kenyan citizen are the duties of the president and he must adhere to them.

“NO. I don't want a favour from despot Uhuru Kenyatta, or from anyone else. OBEYING court Orders, RESPECTING my rights, and UPHOLDING the Constitution are DUTIES. OBLIGATIONS the Despot and everyone must adhere to. Returning to my home and country of birth is NOT A FAVOUR,” he said in a tweet.

His words come a few days after former Chief Justice Willy Mutunga said he plans to travel to Canada and accompany Miguna back into the country.

Dr Mutunga condemned the government for disobeying court orders issued in favour of Miguna, adding that the vocal lawyer should be allowed back in the country unconditionally.

“I have taken this extraordinary step for two fundamental reasons. The first is because of the continued, flagrant and reprehensible defiance of the Government of Kenya, its agencies and senior officials, against the numerous valid court orders in favour of Mr Miguna," said the former CJ.

Adding that, “The second reason why I have decided to undertake this journey is to support and defend the independence of our judiciary, its authority, and the people’s confidence in it.”
