Karua nomination as Raila’s deputy a boost to women aspirants – Sabina Chege

Murang’a County Woman Representative Sabina Chege has lauded former Prime Minister Raila Odinga for nominating Narc Kenya party leader Martha Karua as his running mate.  

Chege noted that the decision by Raila to settle on Karua will give confidence to women vying for various elective positions in the August 2022 polls. By choosing Karua, Chege indicated that Odinga has accorded women respect and honour, especially in the world of politics.

She said Monday’s move will change the perception of women in politics even as she expressed confidence that in the near future, the country will have a woman president.

She exuded confidence that the pair will boost the economy of Kenya if they clinch the presidency come August 9.

“The presidential candidate and his running mate are known as people who have sacrificed for this country in the past,” she said.

“Kenyans have faith in them to revive the economy and end runaway corruption which has rocked the public sector,” added Chege while distributing National Government Affirmative Action Fund bursaries at Kenol trading center in Murang’a.

Chege lauded Karua’s leadership credentials noting that she had exhibited all the qualities needed to be the deputy president of Kenya.

“Martha has not been connected with corruption. She served diligently in all government dockets she held in the past. During Mwai Kibaki’s era, the former Gichugu MP played a key role in service delivery where the country realized big economic growth,” stated Chege.

She castigated opponents of the Azimio la Umoja One Kenya coalition in the Mt Kenya region saying they have nothing to offer Kenyans.

“Kenyans need to wisely elect their leaders in the forthcoming general election. Let’s assess those seeking to be the next president and elect people who will ensure our resources are well protected and equitably distributed,” she further said.

Chege who was also fronted to be a running mate by the Jubilee party said she was satisfied by the decision of the ODM leader vowing to continue drumming support for Azimio la Umoja- One Kenya Alliance.

Meanwhile, the county Woman Rep. called on Wiper Leader Kalonzo Musyoka to reconsider his position and rally behind the Raila Odinga-led alliance saying going to election alone may not be a wise decision.

“My appeal to my friend and Wiper Leader Kalonzo is to come and join us. Let him drop his bid for president since he will not win and this may make many Kenyans not believe in him,” she charged
