Martha Karua shows up at Uhuru event and Twitter is ungovernable
Narc Kenya leader Martha Karua is among top dignitaries who are at hand to receive President Uhuru Kenyatta when he visits Kirinyaga county on Tuesday afternoon.
Daily Nation’s Guchu Ndung’u reports that Ms Karua is among leaders “waiting for President Kenyatta at Kerugoya stadium”.
The President is scheduled to commission the medical leasing equipment at the Kerugoya stadium.
For starters, Ms Karua has previously been a sworn critic of the president and his government especially on the war on corruption.
Now vying for Kirinyaga gubernatorial seat in 2017, Ms Karua has had a change of heart since the county is in Mr Kenyatta’s stronghold.
She told supporters she would support Uhuru re-election but they have told her to join Jubilee. She is expected to fight it out with incumbent Joseph Ndathi and former Devolution CS Anne Waiguru.
Pictures of the former Justice minister in the president Mwai Kibaki’s administration have been circulated on Twitter, touching off a heated debate.
Hearing that laugh from @MarthaKarua makes me measure how desperate she is for leadership seat. Karma come on!
