Fiery Nasa activist Miguna Miguna has vowed to continue the “fight against despots” moments after a High Court judge declared his deportation to Canada illegal.
While giving the ruling on Thursday, Justice Luka Kimaru declared that Miguna’s deportation had no merit in law.
The judge directed the government to deposit Dr Miguna’s revoked passport at the court within seven days.
In a quick response to the judgement, the self-declared National Resistance Movement general said they will use lawful means in their campaign.
“We, the #NRMKe, Kenyan patriots and freedom fighters, believe in and are fully committed to the RULE OF LAW. We shall use the CONSTITUTION as the SPEAR and the SHIELD in the fight against the despots,” he tweeted.
He however gave no indication of making a return to the country.
Miguna filed the suit seeking reinstatement of his Kenyan passport and citizenship on Monday.
Kenyans on Twitter responded with cheer to the High Court judgment.
