ODM Chief Raila Odinga is a man who has been in politics for as long as it takes. He is credited for serving as Lang'ata and Kibera MP back then fighting for the fall of the one-party state and vouching for the adoption of the new constitution. This year, Raila will be trying his 5th shot at the presidency after 4 unsuccessful attempts in the past.
One constant determining factor in the upcoming election is the Mt. Kenya region. Raila has gone ahead to play the cards safe by picking Martha Karua as his running mate. This is a historical moment because it may be the first time when Kenya as a nation will have its first female vice president.
However, according to lawyer Donald Kipkorir, Kenya has the chance of having the first female president whom he has revealed as Martha Karua.
"Kirinyaga is the cradle of Kikuyu Nation .. Raila Odinga has given Kirinyaga a unique chance to give Kenya its first woman Deputy President & its next first woman President. Don’t be blinded by false propaganda to lose this only chance".
As per where things stand, do you think Kenya is ready for a first female president?
