The General did not reveal the cause of death.
This is the worst possible message that the lawyer and his family would have expected at the start of the year.
The news comes when Miguna has scheduled his much publicized return from exile.
He is expected in the country on Tuesday, January 7.
Miguna was deported in 2018 after swearing in ODM leader Raila Odinga as the People’s President.
Efforts to come back to the country have been futile despite numerous court orders asking the government to allow him back.
President Uhuru Kenyatta recently suggested that Miguna may be allowed into the country.
Miguna is one of the fiercest critics of the handshake between Uhuru and Raila. He has blamed the two for the woes his is facing.
