Martha Karua says not privy to the Ruto-Raila deal and reports of Azimio members appointed to state jobs.

Narc Kenya party leader Martha Karua has responded to reports alleging that Azimio leaders would land key government appointments in a deal between President William Ruto and Opposition leader Raila Odinga.

Karua while responding to a question directed at her regarding the arrangement, she insisted that she was not privy to the Ruto-Raila deal and other favours as alleged online.

“Martha Karua, I hope this is fake news. Kenyans can only take so much,” a journalist Rasna Warah reached out to Karua over a news headline reading ‘Key Raila Allies to Land State Jobs in Ruto Deal.’

Responding to the journalist, Karua wrote, “Not aware!”

Her response came hours after Digital Strategist Dennis Itumbi also dismissed the claims of Raila allies landing key government appointments.

“There is no deal on state positions for allies! We promised Kenya it is not about positions but jobs We will keep the promise,” Itumbi insisted.

The reports went viral following the meeting between President Ruto and Raila in Uganda where they met President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni.

President Ruto vowed to popularise and support Raila in his quest to head the continental body.

Speaking in Homa Bay on Tuesday, February 27, President Ruto noted that his support for Raila’s candidature of the African Union Commission was a way of uniting the country.

“There are things I told you guys and you thought it was a joke. Now, you can see it wasn’t a joke. I told you that we would organize everything thoroughly, and no one would be a loser. We will plan so that everyone gets a little share, and then we can move forward. We pray that it all works out as planned,” said Ruto.

“There is space for all of us in Kenya you do not win by making others lose we want a win-win outcome for all of us. Those in opposition must mean well for Kenya and those in government must also mean well but there are no Kenyans in opposition or this other side,” Ruto added.
