Controversial deported lawyer Miguna Miguna officially announces that he will be running for the Nairobi gubernatorial seat.


The deported lawyer will be running through Thirdway Alliance Kenya ticket as stated by the party on Monday, December 28, 2021.


In a statement, the party named him to be a leader who has sacrificed for Kenyans, saying that he was the most suitable to take over from Governor Mike Sonko who was recently impeached by the Senate.


“Dr Miguna Miguna is a Kenyan citizen by birth ID number 2790598 who has sacrificed and worked for this great nation and is the answer to this bankrupt leadership which has deprived development in Nairobi,” the statement read in part.


Mr Fredrick Okang’o, the party’s Secretary-General said that the party officials met with officials from the Independent Electoral and Boundary Commission (IEBC) on Monday morning where they discussed details of Miguna’s candidature.


“He has given us a go-ahead, we shall sign all the documents on his behalf until the day he will jet into the country,” he said.


However, embattled Thirdway Alliance leader Dr Ekuru Aukot, who flew the party’s ticket in the 2017 General Election, rejected the allegations Miguna.


Dr Aukot was kicked-out from his party in September 2020 after long-standing row, according to the party’s National Executive Committee.


Last week, Miguna said that he had been advised by Waikwa Wanyoike, a constitutional lawyer and co-founder of Katiba Institute, to run for the seat.
