Thirdway Alliance Kenya has said that it will not field a presidential candidate in the coming 2022 General Elections.
In a press statement, Party secretary general Fredrick Okango said Thirdway Alliance is keen on working with like-minded parties in the polls.
“A majority of Kenyans believe that diversity is our greatest strength. That protest is among the highest forms of patriotism. That our fates and fortunes are bound to rise and fall together. That even when we fall short of our highest ideals,” he said.
“We as Thirdway Alliance Kenya will Not be fielding a Presidential candidate in 2022 but rather, we will be fielding candidates in all the other elective positions in a bid to foster partnerships with like-minded Political Parties.”
Okango said the call for the aspirants who will be seeking various elective positions apart from the top seat in the country using the party ticket is already out.
At the same time, he said that the party will continue fighting to repair the soul of the nation, using the spirit of Punguza Mizigo Kenya.
“To turn this crisis into a crucible, from which we will forge a stronger, brighter, and more equitable future. We must right the wrongs in our democracy, redress the systemic injustices that have long plagued our society, throw open the doors of opportunity for all Kenyans, and reinvent our institutions,” he said.
He said the country needs a complete overhaul, a radical paradigm shift independent of ethnicity, religion, or gender that will see the country transform into a decent society safe for living without any fear or intimidation.
“The challenges before us—the worst public health crisis in a century, the worst economic downturn ever, the worst period of global upheaval in a generation, the corruption pandemic, the intolerable ethnic profiling that still stains the fabric of our nation—will test Kenya’s character like never before,” he said.
