Miguna Miguna Saga: How DPP Snubbed DCI After Havi Swore False Affidavit

Controversial lawyer Miguna Miguna and the Law Society of Kenya (LSK) President Nelson Havi lied about Miguna’s passport being confiscated by the state, an investigation by the Directorate of Criminal Investigation (DCI) has found.

According to a report presented by the DCI to the DPP in May 2018, Miguna and Havi lied in an affidavit that the former’s passport was confiscated at the Jomo Kenyatta International Airport (JKIA) by immigration officers upon his arrival from Canada.

Sleuths investigating the case found that Miguna travelled to Kenya on March 26, 2018 using his Canadian passport, but failed to produce it at JKIA for clearance.

Instead, Miguna produced his Kenyan identity card and a copy of a court order which he said are the only documents he used to book and board the flight.

Miguna is quoted by the Kenya National Commission for Human Rights saying that the police searched him asking him to produce the “Canadian passport which they did not find”.

At some point, when the immigration officers refused to clear him, Miguna forcefully dashed past the immigration counter to the carousel to take his luggage.

As a result, he was arrested and detained at the airport.

In his reverse trip from Dubai to Canada, Miguna ‘miraculously’ used his Canadian passport to travel back to Canada.

“If indeed the passport was confiscated in Kenya then how did it come into his possession again to use it in his reverse trip as claimed by Nelson Havi. We have found that there is no truth in the allegations by Nelson Havi because when he was summoned by the investigators on the 24th day of April 2018, apart from refusing to attend at DCI Headquarters he tormented the investigator who summoned him with further allegations,” added DCI in their report.

DCI had recommended that Havi be charged for swearing a false statement (offence of perjury) contrary to Section 108 (1) (a) as read with Section 110 of the Penal Code.

However, the DPP ignored the investigation report and to date, he has neither prosecuted Havi nor has he returned/responded to the file presented to him.
