Today, Azimio la Umoja One Kenya coalition party running mate Martha Karua took to the streets of Nairobi to drum support for ODM party leader Raila Odinga. She asked the residents to come out in large numbers on August 9th and vote for Raila. She was hosted by Nairobi county gubernatorial aspirant Polycarp Igathe, senatorial aspirant Edwin Sifuna and women representative aspirant Esther Passaris.
After the campaigns, Martha Karua took to Facebook to reveal one thing she noticed when campaigning in Nairobi. She wrote;
"On my Nairobi tour today, I saw people full of hope. Men and women ready to determine the destiny of this country. Youth ready to fight for a better tomorrow.Traders and businesses needing support to break through. Azimio will work tirelessly for you all."Karua also took the opportunity to tell all aspirants to be peaceful especially during this campaign period. She said that they are political opponents but not enemies. She said that they should stop giving warnings to people and campaign peacefully.
As Karua was in Nairobi, Raila Odinga and his team were in Homabay finalizing their campaigns in Nyanza region. They also critisised Ruto and told him off to stop disrespecting president Uhuru Kenyatta.
They referred to the audio that leaked about him saying that he almost slapped the president. Junet Mohamed played it and said that if he can dare to slap the president, then what will he do if he is given power? That Kenyans should not vote for him. However, the deputy president campaign team has refuted the claims and said that the newspaper that reported that is very biased. They said that they should stop spoiling Ruto's name.
