Canada-based Kenyan lawyerMiguna Miguna is mourning the death of his nephew, who died in South Africa.
Miguna, who made the revelation on social media on Saturday, July 31, said the nephew Oduor Abang’ was involved in a tragic road accident on Wednesday, July 28.
“We are sad to announce the untimely death of Oduor Abang’ Aoyi (Kadiu), in a tragic road accident in South Africa on July 28, 2021. Oduor is the youngest son of my cousin, Prof. Ochieng’ Aoyi,” he posted.
The deceased will be laid to rest on Wednesday, August 4, in Nyatoto, Lambwe Valley,Homa Bay county.
In January 2020, the exiled lawyer lost his father-in-law Benson Omolo Awange.
The death of Mzee Awange came barely five days to the anticipated return of Miguna, who has been in exile since early 2018.
The one time self-declared National Resistance Movement general had assured his supporters he would jet back in the country on January 7, 2020, to continue with the “struggle to liberate” citizens from “a dictatorial and despotic regime”.
However, he was ejected out of a Nairobi-bound plane and forced to return to Canada after the government refused to obey court orders directing the State to facilitate his flight.
According to the government spokesperson Cyrus Oguna, Miguna should process his Kenyan passport any embassy abroad before he is allowed into the country.
This, Miguna claimed, could be a trap to eliminate him.
“Remember Khashoggi who was killed in the Saudi embassy in Turkey by the agents of the Saudi government? He did not know he had been invited to the embassy so as to be killed. I am not that naive to walk into that kind of trap when there is no way anybody would be able to observe what will happen when I am surrounded by Kenyan government state agents,”he claimed.
