Allegations Emerge On Why Uhuru ‘Fears' Karua To Be Picked As Raila's Running Mate

Raila Odinga, the leader of the Orange Democratic Movement (ODM), is anxious to have Martha Karua as his running mate, according to activist Boniface Mwangi, but the Kikuyu elite is afraid.

According to Mwangi, President Uhuru Kenyatta and the Kikuyu elite are anxious that if Raila is elected, he will not allow them to continue robbing the country.

The fact that Raila Odinga will not appoint Martha Karua as his deputy is intriguing since it gives details about Uhuru Kenyatta's expressed fear of the coalition's existence being made public.

According to a reputable source on Twitter, Uhuru is terrified of choosing Martha Karua as Raila's preferred running mate since Raila is so old that he may retire while in office and the deputy will take over as president immediately.

According to the source, Uhuru and Kikuyu leaders are concerned that she would gain access to their confidential business dealings, which include money laundering, and that they will be imprisoned as a result.

As a result, Raila Odinga favors Martha Karua as his running mate, but President Uhuru Kenyatta and the Kikuyu elite are wary of her. " They are concerned that if something happens to Baba and Martha Karua is elected president, their access to plundering will be limited, and they will be imprisoned. The People's Watchman penned a piece.

Karua is largely considered to be one of the most likely successors to Raila as president in 2022.

Raila Odinga, who announced his intention to run for president for the fifth time in December last year, has been advised to pick a running mate from the Mount Kenya region in order to achieve a 100% vote.

Raila may yet be able to persuade Karua to join his cause, since the former Kirinyaga governorship candidate appears to have found a new home with the One Kenya Alliance as Musalia Mudavadi's successor.

Kenneth has been spotted with Raila at recent campaign rallies, attempting to rally support for the former Prime Minister, who is running for the country's top post for the sixth time after four failed efforts.
