Ekuru Aukot in Trouble Hours After Winning the Referendum Push

The leader of the Third Way Alliance Party Ekuru Aukot is a disturbed man after six armed men raided his office in Lavington, Chalbi drive.

Aukot has stated that the Party Secretary General was shot but he managed to scamper for safety in one of the offices.

Aukot has since condemned the act terming it as an act of ‘cowardice.’

“Our party office in Lavington , chalbi drive has just been invaded by 6 armed Nairobi.They have shot at our SG who ran and hid inside one of the offices.This comes barely few hours after Punguza Mizigo Bill passed .This a cowardly act,”Aukot stated.

A number of Kenyans across social media circles believe that this is a pure political witch hunt given that the incident occured just a few hours after IEBC through Chairman Wafula Chebukati declared that Aukot’s punguza mzigo intiative signatures were genuine.

 

The Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) verified that Ekuru Aukot’s ‘Punguza Mzigo’ Initiative pushing for a constitutional amendment had met the required threshold of at least one million signatures.

IEBC stated that the initiative was supported by a total of 1,222,541 registered voters.

The draft Bill will now be submitted to each of the 47 County Assemblies for consideration within 3 months from the date of submission by the commission.

‘Punguza Mzigo’ initiative seeks for a constitutional review to reduce the burden of cost of governance to the taxpayers.

It seeks to scrap some positions of representations.
