Thirdway Alliance has unveiled lawyer Miguna Miguna’s running mate for the Nairobi gubernatorial race by-elections.
On Thursday, the party unveiled Angela Mwikali as Miguna’s running mate.
The party's National Elections Nomination Board assured residents of Nairobi that the two will be on the ballot come February 18.
Thirdway further urged supporters to ignore remarks by ousted party leader Ekuru Aukot.
Chair of the board, Cripus Wathimba on Thursday said Miguna will be in the country soon to campaign for his candidature.
“Do not ask me when or how Miguna will come but he will be in the country soon. We expect the government to obey court orders that were issued allowing him to return,” he said..
Mwikali holds a Ph.D. from the University of Nairobi.
She stated that residents of Nairobi now have an opportunity of correcting the mistakes they made during the 2013 and 2017 elections.
“Miguna and I have the competence to fight cartels and gangs that have derailed development in Nairobi,” she said.
Mwikali added that she has been holding virtual discussions with Miguna, who resides in Canada.
“We have been planning and strategizing virtually but he will soon be in the country to join me in the campaign trail. The general will be back home to clean up Nairobi,” she said.
She asked the government to obey court orders and allow Miguna back to the country.
Mwikali unsuccessfully contested for the Embakasi South Parliamentary seat during the April 5, 2019 by-election.
