The Independent Electoral Commission (IEBC) through its Chairperson has summoned Thirdway Alliance Party leaders over the nomination of Miguna Miguna as the party’s candidate for the Nairobi gubernatorial byelection. In a letter seen by the Kenyan Report, Chebukati says the Commission received two letters from the party one dismissing Miguna Miguna’s nomination, while the other was for it.
Last week on 31st December, Thirdway Alliance Secretary General Fredrick Okango and the outfits Chair Mururu Wawer wrote a letter to Wafula Chebukati affirming the exiled lawyer was their nominated candidate for Nairobi.
Ousted party leader Ekuru Aukot had dismissed Okango and his group saying Miguna Miguna was not the outfits candidate and that the party had been taken over by rent-seekers and political conmen. However, the Thirdway Alliance National Elections Nomination Board has assured its members and residents of Nairobi that Dr. Miguna Miguna will be on the ballot come February 18.
