The return of Nasa activist Miguna Miguna to Kenya met a hurdle at Jomo Kenyatta International Airport after immigration officials insisted that he acquires a Kenyan visa before being granted entry.

His lawyer Cliff Ombeta told journalists that immigration officials are treating Dr Miguna as a Canadian.

The lawyer added Dr Miguna has refused to submit his Canadian passport on the advise of his legal team.

His legal team argues that refusal to grant Dr Miguna entry is contrary to a court order issued by Justice Luka Kimaru.
