Dr. Miguna Miguna , the outspoken kenyan Canadian Barrister has resigned from the Thirdway Alliance Party of kenya. Dr Miguna announced the news in statement issued posted on his social media handles (twitter and Facebook). He did not give reasons that led to this decision. He thanked the party chairman Miruru Waweru and other members of the executive committee including Angela Mwikali and Elias Mutuma
Internal wrangles have ravaged the party with numerous cases pending in court following the expulsion of Dr. Ekuru Aukot from the party leadership. Perhaps that could be the reason why Dr. Miguna did not mention his name on the list of officials he thanked in his statement.
Miguna was categorical that he was not going to join any of the other “personal Outfits masquerading as political parties”
Below is Facebook Post regarding the same.
“This is to announce my resignation from the Thirdway Alliance KENYA, effective August 12, 2021. I thank the Thirdway Alliance KENYA team, especially Miruru Waweru, Angela Mwikali and
Elias Mutuma for their support and commitments to good governance”.
“NO; I’m not joining UDA-Kenya, The ODM Party, Jubilee Party,
ANC Party, Ford Kenya, KANU, or any other personal outfits masquerading as political parties but whose operations are not UNDERGIRDED by a progressive ideology and GENUINE COMMITMENT for TRANSFORMATION. #UhuruMustFall”
“The struggle continues. Viva!”
Thirdway Alliance party unveiled Miguna Miguna as the party’s candidate for the Nairobi governor by-election that was slated for February 18, 2021, following the impeachment of then Nairobi Governor, Mike Mbuvi Sonko. However, the by election did not take place.
At the time, Miguna had out cartels in Nairobi County on notice saying,
“The cartels and their surrogates are trembling already, but the majestic people of Nairobi are happy and ready with their voters’ cards. We are going to transform Nairobi into a first-class county and city.”
Dr. Miguna was deported to Canada in 2018 for participating in the mock-swearing in ceremony of Raila Odinga. He remains active on social media and has been a critic of the Handshake initiative spearheaded by President Uhuru Kenyatta and former Prime Minister Rt. Honorable Raila Odinga.
