Karua told to fold up Narc Kenya and join JP, fight out for ticket in Kirinyaga race

The Star (Kenya) - - Politics -

Kirinyaga Cen­tral MP Joseph Gi­tari has urged Narc Kenya leader Martha Karua to fold her party and join the Ju­bilee Party. Speak­ing to the Star on the phone, Gi­tari wel­comed Karua’s move to sup­port Pres­i­dent Uhuru Keny­atta in his re­elec­tion bid. Gi­tari said Karua should join JP and square it out with other as­pi­rants eye­ing the Kirinyaga gover­nor seat since the Pres­i­dent has as­sured JP nom­i­na­tions will be fair. The Kirinyaga Cen­tral MP is in the race for the gover­nor seat along­side busi­ness­man Muri­ithi Ka­gai, who ran in the last elec­tions but lost to the in­cum­bent Joseph Ndathi. For­mer De­vo­lu­tion CS Anne Waig­uru is also in the race for the JP ticket. Two weeks ago, Karua said she would run for Kirinyaga gover­nor on her party’s ticket. Last week, while meet­ing del­e­gates from four wards of Gichugu con­stituency at the Kianyaga Catholic Church Hall, Karua said she would sup­port Uhuru for Pres­i­dent.
