A Kenyan court has revoked the deportation of opposition lawyer Miguna Miguna, who the authorities accused of "swearing in" Raida Odinga as the "people's president".

Judge Luka Kimaru also orderered Kenya's government to return the passport confiscated from Miguna Miguna when he was deported.

Further, Dr Matiang'i argues that the issue of deportation of Dr Miguna is pending before another High Court judge and can not be adjudicated upon without a valid hearing.

The High Court on Thursday quashed an order by the government that saw self-declared National Resistance Movement (NRM) general Miguna Miguna dramatically deported to Canada nine days ago.
