Kisumu residents have vowed to starve to death if Miguna Miguna is not brought back into the country. The residents maintain Miguna’s deportation was illegal and unjust. The early morning of April 5th 2018 saw women, men and children holding placards roam the streets of Kisumu asking the government to allow Miguna back.
Unlike their previous demonstrations, the residents remained calm and did not destroy any property. They however vowed not to eat or take any drink until their pleas were heard. The government however still holds that Miguna forfeited his Kenyan Citizen and was now a Canadian.
The natives maintain that the hunger strike is not about Miguna alone. The country is slowly going back to the dark regime they say. So many deaths have not been accounted for. They want justice to the Meru university student who was short and killed by police. They also want answers to all the previous cases like Msando’s and lawyer Willy Kimani’s deaths.
Here are all the pictures from Kisumu hunger strike.
