Suspended Thirdway Alliance Partly leader Ekuru Aikot has been barred from accessing the party offices.

The Political Parties Disputes Tribunal gave an order on Tuesday, which restricted Aukot, his servant, agents, and employees from accessing the party’s premises, pending the hearing and determination of this application and suit.

The party leader was suspended on August 26, following allegations of financial impropriety and lack of transparency to the party members.

A section of Thirdway Alliance National Executive Committee (NEC)held a meeting at the party’s headquarters where they resolved to suspend Aukot.

Thirdway Alliance Party sought a prohibitory injunction from the Political Parties Disputes Tribunal banning the politician and his staff from accessing the office or dealing in any manner with the members of NEC.

According to the Certificate of Agency from the party filed on August 31, Aukot will not be able to access the party premises until the party Disciplinary Committee makes its ruling on September 4.

The Deputy Director of the Political Parties Disputes Tribunal granted the party their wishes and gave the suspended party leader and interested parties seven days to file their complaints.

The tribunal is set to hold a virtual meeting with the concerned parties on September 9 to confirm compliance.

Aukot has been accused of beating up his deputy, Dr. Angela Mwikalio, and used harsh words, which were later published by online bloggers.

He was also accused of defying a court order in a children’s case, which is against Chapter Six of Kenya’s constitution.

However, the former presidential candidate defended his suspension and blamed proponents of the Buiding Bridges Initiative (BBI) for causing turmoil in his party.

Aukot further said that his troubles started when he relaunched the Punguza Mzigo Kenya.

The embattled politician added that he was a victim of his latest initiative since it was a threat to BBI, which is being pushed by President Uhuru Kenyatta and ODM leader Raila Odinga.
