For those thinking that the handshake was supposed to solve Miguna's immigration problems, I beg to differ.
This is why.
Usually and world over visa and immigration issues are individual problems and no one can interfere. I will give you an example. You may be a personal friend of US Ambassador Robert Godec. However in the event the visa consular at the US Embassy denies you a US visa, Ambasador Godec cannot intervene.
ISSUES surrounding Miguna's case are tricky. A questions any immigration official will want to answer is this. When he boarded his plane in Dubai to travel to Nairobi, which travel document did he present to the airline? Did he utilize his Canadian passport or the Court Order?
Let's put it another way in the travel manifest of passengers, which Miguna Miguna travelled to Kenya? Miguna the Kenyan of Miguna the Canadian?
I therefore conclude that Miguna should have given the Kenyan immigration the travel document he used to board the flight in Dubai.
In conclusion therefore admitting Miguna Miguna with a document other than the one he used to board the flight to Nairobi would have been in violation of IATA rules & regulations. I am widely travelled and I know what am talking about.
If Migunamiguna wanted to enter Kenya as a a Kenyan citizen, he should have let his lawyers process his Kenyan passport which would have been delivered to him via the Kenyan Embassy in Canada.
He should never have been allowed to board with a Canadian document if that was not the document he wished to present to the Kenyan immigration upon arrival.
Kenya is a sovereign state. You just don't travel to Kenya on a foreign passport and then refuse to hand over the same passport to immigration and expect to be admitted. If Migunamiguna doesn't want to obey the simple Kenyan immigration procedure of admission which are all usually subjected to then which laws would he obey?
