We failed Miguna Miguna, Nasa leaders say

A number of Nasa members have come out openly to admit that they failed outspoken politician Miguna Miguna during his most trying moment in the hands of the government.

Edwin Sifuna, who is part of the legal team representing the lawmaker, is the most notable figure within Nasa’s top leadership who has made the admission on Twitter in the wake of Miguna’s deportation to Canada on Wednesday.

Sifuna, however, didn’t elaborate further on his statement.

Hi sentiments were echoed by Embakasi East Member of Parliament Babu Owino. The first-time MP went ahead to apologize to the self-proclaimed National Resistance Movement general.

At the same time, sources within the opposition coalition have indicated to Nairobi News that there is reason to believe the top leadership ‘did not do enough’ to help Miguna when he was in custody.

Others have even suggested that it could be a top Nasa who tipped the government of the ‘anomaly’ in Miguna’s citizenship status and travel documents.
