“The matter has been reported at Kilimani Police Station and is under police investigation,” stated Thirdway Alliance in a statement.
The party further noted that it had made changes to its official communication channels in a bid to keep its members and supporters informed.
This comes after the party on Friday, August 6, expelled four leaders over gross misconduct and for violating the party’s constitution.

The expelled leaders include the national chairperson, Daniel Muiruri Waweru, deputy party leader, Angela Mwikali, national women leader, Giovanna Bunei and Joan Lagat who was the deputy youth leader.
“The decision to expel the four members was made after extensively attempting to explore the provisions of Articles 14 and 25 of the party constitution that provides for the disciplinary measures of the party officials and Internal Dispute Resolution Mechanism (IDRM)," said the party in a statement.
Thirdway Alliance said the complaints against the expelled leaders were handled by NEC, saying that the four had absconded from duty for a period of more than four months against the explicit provisions of the party.
The four expelled officials have now joined hands with former party leader, Ekuru Aukot, who is currently in court to regain control of the party he helps found.

Lawyer Miguna Miguna on Sunday, August 15 announced his resignation from opposition party Thirdway Alliance.
Miguna had written to the party on August 12 to the party’s Secretary-General tendering his resignation from the political outfit.
He also asked the party to remove his name from its membership list and communicate the same to the Registrar of Political Parties.

“This is to advise you that effective immediately, I have resigned as a member of the Thirdway Alliance Kenya party,” the letter read in part.
Miguna thanked Miruru Waweru, the national chairman, Agnes Mwikali, the deputy party leader and other party leaders for their support and commitments to good governance.
He also dismissed claims of joining the United Democratic Alliance (UDA), Orange Democratic Movement (ODM), Jubilee, Amani National Congress (ANC), Ford Kenya or KANU.

Miguna claimed the outfits masqueraded as parties and that their operations were based on a progressive ideology and genuine commitment for transformation. In January 2021, Thirdway Alliance formally presented Miguna Miguna as their nominee for the Nairobi Gubernatorial by-elections. He was to run alongside Angela Mwikali who would be his deputy.

This was the second time he was nominated by the party for the seat. In December 2020, Thirdway Alliance had footed the lawyer as the party’s candidate for the Nairobi gubernatorial seat which fell vacant following the ouster of Mike Sonko.

Miguna was deported to Canada on March 26, 2018, following the controversial swearing-in of NASA Principal as the people’s president in January the same year. The lawyer is yet to return to the country despite the court ordering the state to pay him damages and return his passport. The court also ruled his deportation illegal.
