Kenyan opposition politician Miguna Miguna has issued an appeal from Dubai where the government forcibly deported him to.

In a message posted on his Facebook page, the lawyer said he was stranded in Dubai and needed the authorities back home to send him his Kenyan passport so that he can travel back home.

Government at the time said he had denounced his Kenyan citizenship and was holding a Canadian passport. Miguna’s lawyers secured court orders asking government to facilitate his return to the country.

In a much publicized return early this week, the government insisted on arrival that Miguna applies for a visa which he flatly refused to, stressing that at no point had he denounced his Kenyan citizenship.

He was held for two days at the Jomo Kenyatta International Airport (JKIA) amid scuffles with security authorities.

A court ordered him to be produced on Wednesday but the police and immigration chiefs failed so to do instead he was reportedly dragged, drugged and deported to Dubai.

The Milimani Court on Thursday slapped the Interior Minister, the Immigration and Police chiefs with fines in the region of $2,000 for defying the courts orders. The said amount was to be deducted directly from their next salaries.

Uganda: Raging fire kills nine students in boarding School.

Published

Nine students died after fire engulfed a dormitory at a secondary school in southern Uganda early Monday, police said, one of the deadliest in a string of conflagrations at schools across the country in recent years.

Police spokesman Patrick Onyango said, the nine male students died when the blaze erupted at a dormitory that housed about 130 students at St. Bernard Maya secondary school in a district near the border with Tanzania.



Security personnel, Onyango said, suspect the fire was started deliberately by a group of students who had been expelled days earlier from the same school over indiscipline.
