Karua’s bid for Kirinyaga gov­er­nor dead on ar­rival

The Star (Kenya) - - News -

Wed­nes­day’s edi­tion of the Star re­ported that Narc-Kenya leader and for­mer pres­i­den­tial can­di­date Martha Karua will an­nounce her can­di­da­ture for Kirinyaga gov­er­nor in two weeks. But her bid may be dead on ar­rival based on two key is­sues. First is her fail­ure to ac­knowl­edge the supremacy of Pres­i­dent Uhuru Keny­atta in Mt Kenya re­gion pol­i­tics. Her in­sis­tence on re­main­in­ing in Nark-Kenya while oth­ers are mi­grat­ing to the Ju­bilee Party is a pointer to this fact. Se­cond, her af­fil­i­a­tion with Cord’s Raila Odinga does not place her in a favourable po­si­tion in Kirinyaga.
