Keroche founder Tabitha Karanja has officially joined the United Democratic Alliance (UDA) party.
On Wednesday, January 26, Karanja, who is running for Nakuru Senatorial seat attended Deputy President William Ruto’s UDA rally in Nakuru County.
The DP utilized the occasion to warmly welcome her, hailing her as a respectable industrialist and a capable leader.
Karanja told the crowd that she made the choice after consulting with her people and that she was interested in making the country a business-friendly atmosphere.
“I have listened to you and you have told me that the only vehicle I can use to represent you is UDA. I agree with you.
“To the DP, I have listened to you and I have practiced that for the last twenty-five years and I am a practical example of bottom-up. I ask you when you make the Cabinet, remember the problem businesses have gone through.
You should know that we want a conducive environment for businesses. High taxation has brought down companies,” she stated.
She further noted that she had the citizen’s interest at heart, explaining that she was interested in increasing employment opportunity’s as espoused by the Hustler Movement.
“I want to represent you to ensure that all the laws from above are not meant to discriminate against us. Are we together? Our job is to look for work so we can have some money in our pockets.
“I was born here. I come from Kenton Kijabe and attended Kiambogo Primary School before joining Bahati Girls High School. I am the one who set up the biggest company in Kiambu County, ” she added.
