Narc Kenya Party leader Martha Wangari Karua took her campaigns for the Azimio la Umoja One Kenya coalition to Laikipia County where she addressed residents and aspirants under the party.
She took the opportunity of the forum to drum up support for the coalition’s President Candidate Raila Amolo Odinga urging them to support his bid.
Speaking in Nyahururu town, the Narc Kenya leader alluded that Raila was the best-placed candidate for the next president owing to his long track record of standing for Kenyans in the fight against corruption, democracy and multiparty, during the Moi era.
“This is the right time for Kenyans to look for the best leaders ahead of the August polls and any leader with integrity issues should not be given a chance to lead, she said.
“Kenyans need to be keen and vet aspirants who have expressed interests to contest for the various positions in order to ensure that they elect leaders with integrity and good morals,” added Karua.
Karua who has also expressed interest to contest the Kirinyaga gubernatorial seat said she was committed to continuing her fight against injustices.
She also underscored the need for Kenyans and leaders to embrace tolerance and sobriety, especially at this time political campaigns have continued to intensify to ensure that the country does not plunge into chaos.
Speaking separately with the press, Jubilee Secretary-General Jeremiah Kioni welcomed the entrenchment of the handshakes as political coalitions result to change from the past way of coming up with a consensus.
He said the move would help realise cohesion and peace while enabling the country to move forward even with forthcoming general elections.
Kioni who is also the Ndaragwa Member of Parliament observed that it’s time political parties vetted their aspirants long before they go for nominations.
