Karua hits back at Kalonzo over Mt Kenya caucus, Kamwene group

Kalonzo Musyoka and Martha Karua publicly trade barbs over Kamwene meetings in the Mt Kenya region.

Narc Kenya Party Leader Martha Karua has responded to Wiper Party Leader Kalonzo Musyoka following his sentiments regarding a newly formed Mt Kenya caucus, Kamwene.

During a media interview held on Tuesday, Kalonzo argued that the forum diverts Azimio’s intention and creates individualism, whereby the coalition risks being divided based on tribal lines.

He called the forum ‘dead on arrival’ and urged his counterparts to stick to the coalition and speak in one voice.

“I don’t want to pass judgment on that issue, but have you heard of things like dead on arrival? Because this thing means individualism. It is a terrible political philosophy. I’d advise my friends to leave it, and we stick together in Azimio,” he stated while appearing on KTN News

However, in a statement dated Wednesday, January 10, Karua questioned why Kalonzo was obsessed with the Kamwene caucus.

She further inquired why Kalonzo appeared frightened by the caucus activities which was established in October 2023.

To iron out their differences, Karua asked Kalonzo to boldly describe what scares him following the formation of the caucus.

“What about Kamwene scares my brother Kalonzo Musyoka that he must drag it in every conversation he has?” Karua posed.

The Kamwene Leaders Forum is a platform where Mt Kenya leaders address various problems affecting the region. Kamwene is a Kikuyu term that means “the owner”.

Other than NARC Kenya party leader Martha Karua, former Laikipia Governor Ndiritu Muriithi, embattled Jubilee Secretary-General Jeremiah Kioni, and Party of National Unity leader Peter Munya are members of Kamwene.
