Martha Karua Makes Major Political Shift – Kenyans React


Narc-Kenya Party leader Martha Karua on Wednesday announced that she would vie for the Kirinyagagubernatorial seat in the upcoming 2017 General Election.

Karua’s announcement came barely a month after she declared her interest in the Presidency.

Addressing the media, Karua divulged that she would begin her campaign for the Governor’s seat in two weeks time but did not explain why the sudden change of heart.

A week ago, the former Gichugu MP stated that she would neither join Jubilee nor CORD but would use Nark-Kenya to vie for any seat.

“I have no affiliation to CORD or Jubilee. The party is @narckenya,” Karua affirmed.

The former Justice Minister is set to compete with former Devolution Cabinet Secretary Ann Waiguru who is also eyeing the same seat on a Jubilee ticket.

Other candidates seeking the Kirinyaga gubernatorial seat include Kirinyaga Central MP Joseph Gitari, Muriithi Kagai and current Governor Joseph Ndathi.

Karua’s new political move sparked interesting reactions with a section of the public noting that she would lead Kirinyaga in the right direction.
