Politician and City Lawyer Karen Nyamu has come out to speak about her statement on Thursday where she referred to Ruto as 'Chuma'. Kenyans had a different understanding of her words and some asked her to mind her language. While speaking to the Standard, Nyamu said that her remarks were an analogy to mean that ladies were not going to let anyone choose a leader for them when they have DP Ruto.
"As women, we are opposed to a few people holding meetings in hotels and forcing down our throats on an old candidate. We prefer a younger energetic leader like Ruto ready for work," she said.
She proceeded say she was not sorry for her words since UDA allies were okay with it. She even promised to use it in her next speech.
"I will repeat it in my next political speech anywhere because that is the truth, I will not sugarcoat it, Kenyan women want a young and energetic leader," Nyamu said.
