Karua express her future worries over political rival as she campaigned for Raila in Tharaka

If ODM leader Raila Odinga wins the presidential election in August, even wealthy people would not have to pay for their children's education, according to Martha Karua, his running mate.

This comes at a time when individuals who are financially secure appear to be mostly ignored by those campaigning for seats, the majority of whose ideas are geared toward the poor.

However, Karua claims that even the wealthy will be pleased if the former Prime Minister wins the seat since they will no longer have to pay school fees, and that the free education idea will apply to everyone.

"We believe that just one child can uplift the status of an entire family," she said in Tharaka Nithi, according to NTV. "Every child, whether belonging to a rich or poor person, will receive free education."

She also reaffirmed Raila's promise of a Sh6,000 monthly stipend for disadvantaged families, while attempting to rally county inhabitants behind Raila's campaign.

The former Justice Cabinet Minister also took a shot at the rival Kenya Kwanza, warning Kenyans not to put their faith in it since the only thing its leadership and members are good at is widely known.

She targeted Raila's primary competitor, Kenya Kwanza presidential contender William Ruto, claiming that if the DP is trusted with the country's leadership, only corruption will be witnessed.

Karua voiced her concern that if Ruto wins, Kenya will not be able to achieve its goals, and she requested Kenyans to assist her by ensuring that Raila defeats the DP.

"Others leave a trail of corruption and looting in their wake everywhere they go. Are these the types of people we want to entrust our money to?" she continued.
