High Court Suspends Decision To Revoke Passports For NASA Leaders


The High Court yesterday suspended the decision by the State to revoke the passports of seven NASA leaders.

This came after the NASA leaders, including strategist David Ndii and UoN lecturer Adams Oloo, yesterday moved to court to challenge the State’s move. Others were Senator James Orengo, businessman Jimi Wanjigi, Paul Mwangi, Dagoretti MP Simba Arati and Henry Mien.

They sued Immigration director Gordon Kihalangwa and Interior CS Fred Matiang’i.

Justice John Mativo issued conservatory orders restraining the State from interfering with the leaders’ travelling documents and movements in and out of the country, pending conclusion of the case.

In the case filed at the Milimani law courts, the NASA leaders sought a mandatory order compelling the State to also reinstate Mien’s confiscated passport.

They also wanted the court to restrain the State or its agents from implementing, and, in any way, effecting its decision to suspend the petitioners’ passports or from interfering with “our rights to movement in and out of the country”.
