Kiraitu Murungi Reveals What Residents of Mt Kenya Told Him While Selling Raila, Karua Reacts

Azimio la Umoja One Kenya Coalition party running mate Martha Karua has been intensifying campaigns in the Mount Kenya region with her latest caravan making a stop in the Meru showground.

She was accompanied by Nyeri governor Kiraitu Murungi, his deputy Titus Ntuchiu and Igembe North MP Maoka Maore. The four were campaigning for Orange Democratic Movement (ODM).

Speaking to the residents, Mr Murungi stated that it was hard selling the former Prime Minister in the region as people kept telling him that he was on the verge of losing votes.

He however exuded confidence that the residents have now accepted Azimio and the only thing that remained was voting for him on the ballot in the upcoming general elections in August.

Martha Karua on her aside urged politicians not to fear when the crowds shout them down, but to be humbled and explain to them why they have stood with Raila.

She further asked those contesting for elective posts in the region to continue campaigning for Raila and stop the thought of being rejected because of the support of Deputy President William Ruto in the region by some quarters.
