Blogger Dennis Itumbi has publicly apologised to Miguna Miguna following the exiled politicians double deportation in 2018.
Miguna was twice deported after he played a key role in the controversial swearing in of opposition leader Raila Odinga as the Peoples President on January 30, 2018 before a charged crowd at Uhuru Park.
At the time, Itumbi, who worked at State House, was vocal on social media, justifying Migunas deportation even though the courts would later rule it was not done as per the law.
And now, two years later, Itumbi, who has since been sacked from State House, has admitted he was wrong back then.
He has also offered an apology to Miguna and Kenyans at large.
“The Prefecrure led by Fred Matiangi and Karanja Kibicho called me to explain why they were disobeying Court orders issued in favour Miguna Miguna – I listened and agreed with them. I was wrong to cheer them on. I offer my unconditional apology to Country & Miguna,” Itumbi tweeted on Monday.
“I will remember next time to stand on the side of the law and ignore the interpretation of the prefecture that is obviously laced with dictatorship aforethought,”,he added.
Itumbis comments came on a day Chief Justice David Maraga accused President Uhuru Kenyatta of repeatedly disobeying court orders.
