On Saturday afternoon, former Nairobi gubernatorial candidate and self-declared NRM Kenya General Miguna Miguna announced that the government had seized his silver Mercedes-Benz ahead of his much anticipated January 7th return.
Through his official Twitter account, a furious Miguna posted that “five heavily armed Flying Squad officers” had illegally taken his car away from an acquaintance named Ferdinand Ogumah.
The Kenyan-born Canadian dissident added he suspects the purpose this act is so that surveillance devices are planted on the car.
To @DCI_Kenya Kinoti: At around 12:30PM today, 5 heavily-armed Flying Squad officers now calling themselves "Special Service Unit" ILLEGALLY SEIZED my vehicle from @FerdinandOgumah in Nairobi and detained it, most likely to install SURVEILLANCE DEVICES. Release my vehicle! pic.twitter.com/Eua8wyu6Ah

This comes just a few hours after the advocate filed an application at Milimani High Court in Nairobi, seeking orders to restrain the State from interfering with his return to Kenya.
Through lawyer John Khaminwa, Miguna wants the State to comply with the orders issued by Justice Chacha Mwita on December 14, 2018.
Khaminwa seeks an order compelling the State to facilitate entry of Miguna into Kenya on January 7, or any other date on the basis of his identification through his national identity card, or his Kenyan passport in the form and State it was delivered to the High Court Registry pursuant to the court order.
Miguna says his application is urgent because he wants to come back to Kenya on January 7.
