The Nairobi senate seat aspirant told The Standard over the phone that it was an analogy to suggest that as women, they would not allow a few persons to sit in hotels and compel them to elect an elderly guy when they had Deputy President William Ruto as an option.
Karen said she made no apologies for her comments and that UDA supporters were fine with them.
She said "I will say it again in my next political speech anywhere because it is the truth, Kenyans women want a young and energetic leader."
She accused her political opponents of attempting to sexualize her words for propaganda purposes, claiming that Kenyans are aware of comparisons in politics and that hers is no exception.
