Thirdway Alliance party leader Ekuru Aukot has now declared his candidature for 2022 presidential elections days after Thirdway Alliance Secretary General Fredrick Okango said the party wont field a presidential candidate.
In a joint statement signed by Ekuru Aukot and Thirdway Alliance Deputy party leader Angela Mwikali, they said that Okango has no authority to subvert the party’s constitution and make a declaration that undermines both party’s and Constitution of Kenya.
“Our attention has been drawn to reports circulating in social media purporting that the Thirdway Alliance Kenya will not field a presidential candidate in the coming general election. The statements are attributed to remarks made by one Fredrick Okango who has no authority to subvert the party’s constitution and make a declaration that undermines not only our party and the Constitution of Kenya,” stated in a joint statement.
While continuing the two declared that they will be on the ballot.
“Our party will be fielding presidential candidates and currently Dr Angela Mwikali and Dr Ekuro Aukot have already declared interest to run. Whoever wants to go and support Raila Odinga should go to ODM,” they said.
This comes few days after Okango said the patry won’t have a presidential candidate on the ballot.
Thirdway Alliance have been having some wrangles that led to Ekuro Aukot being kicked out as party leader by National Executive Committee (NEC) of the party September last year.
