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.

@MarthaKarua kirinyaga is going to change under your stewardship. promise us you wont affiliate yourself with chupilee like @Peter_Kenneth

I hope the people of Kirinyaga will make the right choice and vote for @MarthaKarua . Great leader

.@MarthaKarua Congratulations Iron Lady. You have given Kirinyaga people the opportunity to redefine history!

Another section declared it a two-horse race between Karua and Waiguru for the Governor’s seat in 2017.

Martha Karua has been Writing her Political Obituary and her Death will be In 2017 …we Cant wait to humiliate her. @AnnWaiguru 4 Kirinyaga
