Lawyers of Miguna Miguna filed a petition on his behalf challenging his deportation to Canada and the revocation of his citizenship by the government
Kenya-Canadian Lawyer Miguna Miguna asked the court to shelve the declaration by the government that he is not a Kenyan. He said he gained a Kenyan citizenship by birth and thus it is unconstitutional for such citizenship to be revoked without him submitting an application over the same.
Miguna Miguna in his petition also wanted the court to issue an order suspending the notice vetoing the National Resistance Movement (NRM) as an illegitimate organization.
