Johannesburg - Miguna Miguna, the self-declared "general" of Kenya’s National Resistance Movement (NRM), has alleged that he was drugged before being deported to Dubai on Wednesday night. 

In a Facebook post from Dubai on Thursday, Miguna said he was dragged, assaulted, drugged and forcefully flown to Dubai after being kept in a police detention cell at Nairobi’s Jomo Kenyatta International Airport (JKIA).

“I was dragged, assaulted, drugged and forcefully flown to Dubai,” he posted.

“I woke up in Dubai and the despots are here insisting that I must travel on to London.”

He added: “I’m sick. My ribs and body is hurting all over. This is a travesty of justice! I need medical treatment. I need urgent help here.”

Miguna, a dual citizen of Kenya and Canada, arrived at the airport on Monday afternoon after a six-week stay in Canada where he had been previously    deported to on February 6 after his arrest for his role in the controversial January 30 swearing-in of National Super Alliance (NASA) opposition leader Raila Odinga, as the People's President.
