Sources at the Directorate of Criminal Intelligence have indicated that Police are investigating if the attack on Third-way alliance political outfit offices was internal and the exact motive of such a move. Our source also confirms that Ekiru has strong links to Statehouse and that if the attack was not an inside job then the attackers will be apprehended before close of business today (within 24 hours).
It is a known a fact that Ekiru is a systems person and that is why IEBC confirmed the more than One million signatures he purportedly collected even without any mechanism for verification. The self attack is meant is to soar publicity and also aimed at cementing legitimacy a move that seems to have backfired as it failed to trend and cause public uproar as was envisioned.
Six armed goons, on Thursday evening, reportedly raided the Thirdway Alliance Kenya offices in Lavington, Nairobi.
It is alleged that the goons shot at the party’s Secretary General, Fredrick Okango, who ran and hid in one of the offices.
On their Twitter page, the party led by former presidential candidate, Ekuru Aukot, divulged that their offices had been invaded by six armed men.

On Thursday the Independent Electoral Boundaries Commission (IEBC) verified the party’s ‘Punguza Mzigo’ Initiative, pushing for constitutional amendments.
The ‘Punguza Mzigo’ initiative seeks a constitutional review to overhaul the structure of government in order to reduce the burden of the cost of governance to taxpayers.
The initiative is said to have met the required threshold of at least one million signatures.
The commission, in a press statement, stated that the initiative sponsored by Aukot’s Thirdway Alliance Kenya Party, was supported by a total of 1,222,541 registered voters.
“The commission has since verified that the initiative has been supported by 1,222,541 registered voters. This is, therefore, to notify the public and all stakeholders that the initiative has met the requisite threshold as required by the said articles 257(4) of the constitution of Kenya, 2010,” recorded IEBC.
