Could Karua Be in Danger? Calls Out to Have More Security Protecting Martha as These Claims Emerge

Leaders in Azimio La Umoja One Kenya Coalition from Kirinyaga County now want Raila Odinga's running mate Martha Karua assigned more security by the government.

Kirinyaga County Jubilee Chairman, Muriithi Kang’ara, on Sunday claimed that there were some politicians who were unhappy with Martha Karua's tenacity and vigor in promoting the Azimio presidential candidate Raila Odinga.

"Those who are campaigning against Azimio are not happy with the resilience and dedication of Martha Karua in selling Raila Odinga in Mount Kenya and across the country. She should therefore be assured of her safety and be added more police officers to give her protection during political rallies," Muriithi King'ara stated as indicated by Taifa Leo.

This comes after what happened last week when Martha Karua was quickly evacuated from Gusii Stadium after teargas canister was thrown at the podium when she started addressing Kisii residents. Following the event, one police officer is being investigated in connection with the incident.

Kirinyaga Senator Charles Kibiru, who is running for governor as an independent candidate also reiterated the remarks to have more security details protecting Martha Karua. Charles Kibiru also promised to work with other politicians in Azimio to ensure that the former Prime Minister Raila Odinga gains more votes in Mount Kenya region.
