Martha Karua should apologize to Azimio leader Raila Odinga for failing to deliver votes in the August elections.
A group of Mt. Kenya leaders now wants Martha Karua, the running mate for Azimio, to apologize to Raila Odinga, the coalition’s leader.
On Sunday, September 11, Murang’a Woman Representative Betty Maina speaking during thanksgiving in Maua claimed that despite being chosen as Raila’s deputy, Karua had failed to win over voters in the area.
According to the County MP, the votes the coalition party garnered in the region were a result of the diligence of the former Prime Minister and his sheer hard work.
“Martha Karua added no value, she added nothing to that basket yet she is complaining and taking ownership. The only business she is left with is to ask for forgiveness from Baba because he got his votes through his hard work.
“And if we were to be honest, Azimio was not keen on seeking votes in the Mount Kenya region, their work was to compete on who will land the more choppers during campaigns,” the Woman Rep. noted.
Gatundu South Member of Parliament (MP) Githuka Kagombe condemned the move by Karua to seek redress at the East African Court of Justice over Kenya’s Supreme Court verdict that upheld William Ruto’s win.
Kagombe corroborated Maina’s sentiments adding that Wiper party leader Kalonzo Musyoka had more right to appeal the decision of the apex court since he outdid himself in delivering over one million votes from his region.
“Martha Karua should just be content. I wish it was Kalonzo filing the case instead because she did not even have support from her backyard
“Kenyans have already decided that this is the government they want to work with and she should stop politicking. It is time to work, not engage in politics,” the MP.
