Drama as Thirdway Alliance suspends party leader Ekuru Aukot
Drama was on Wednesday witnessed at the Thirdway Alliance headquarters in Nairobi as Ekuru Aukot was removed from his position as the party leader.
A section of the party, led by Secretary General Fredrick Okango, accused Aukot of various irregularities and financial impropriety.
Mr. Okango, in a statement later issued to the press, said the party’s National Executive Committee (NEC) held a meeting earlier in the day and considered complaints raised against Aukot by various party members.
“Assault on Dr. Angela Mwikali, the Deputy Party Leader using crude words which were later published by online bloggers,” read the statement.
“Financial impropriety, self-enrichment, non-accountability and lack of transparency. Defying a Court order in Children Case No. 1591 of 2019, thus violating Chapter six of the Constitution of Kenya 2010.”
The party Secretary General further added” “Dr Ekuru Aukot has been suspended as the party leader indefinitely and shall not represent or transact any business on behalf of the party pending determination of the matter by the disciplinary committee.”
Dr Aukot was hence also directed to appear before the disciplinary committee.
