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.

DR Congo blame Unending Ebola Outbreak on Violence , Community Mistrust.

Published

on

DR Congo Ministry of Health spokesperson Jessica Ilunga has declared that violence and community mistrust have continued to hamper all efforts to control and end the fresh Ebola outbreak, which started Aug. 1.



Though according to the World Health Organization the number of new Ebola cases has dropped slightly in the Democratic Republic of the Congo as there are 33% fewer cases to date in February compared with the same time period in December per STAT’s Helen Branswell, but some experts warn Axios that there remain signs that this outbreak is far from over.

Meanwhile, some experts warn that, that doesn’t mean the world’s second-largest Ebola outbreak on record is yet under control, and in fact it could simply be moving to new areas of the sprawling country.

Johns Hopkins’ public health expert Jennifer Nuzzo maintains there are several reasons people should continue to view this outbreak as a cause for concern.

However, Nuzzo said Congo needs more than money from the international community and the U.S. in particular. Safety concerns have largely caused the CDC to limit its Ebola experts to the capital city of Kinshasa, where some have returned after being evacuated during an uptick in election-related violence, Nuzzo added that Now is the time for the U.S. to send them into the field.
