Revealed: Why Karua Warned Voters Against Electing Corrupt Leaders Ahead Of 2022 Polls

Martha Karua, the head of the Narc Kenya party and the chair of the Mt. Kenya Unity Forum, has urged Kenyans against sanitizing crooks by electing them to positions of leadership.

Karua claimed that not all politicians are thieves, and that only those with a clean track record should be chosen, while speaking in Nyeri on Thursday at an unification conference with grassroots leaders.

Karua, who was accompanied by former Mukurwe-ini MP Kabando wa Kabando and his Othaya counterpart Mary Wambui, said the meeting was one of many aimed at bringing the mountain together and speaking from a shared perspective ahead of the next general election.

Karua went on to say that the appeals for unity aren't designed to compel the region to support a specific candidate, but rather to provide a common basis for deciding who to support.

Voting those who steal from the public coffers and deliver freebies to the electorate, according to the party leader, is like electing "a person who takes chicken and gives you just soup made from the legs of the bird they stole from you."

Former Othaya MP Mary Wambui, for her part, said Karua is the type of leader Kenya needs, noting that she (Karua) had previously left office because to government corruption.

Wambui regarded Karua as a courageous and uncorrupted leader. Kabando Wa Kabando, for one, said he supports the Mt. Kenya unity forum's calls for unity, claiming that an unified Mount Kenya is the only way the region's voice will be heard and recognized.

He appealed for unity, stating that the region should only support people who will not abandon the electorate once in power. He urged Karua to reach out to more leaders, especially presidential hopefuls.

This meeting comes just one day after Martha Karua met with other regional party leaders in Nairobi on Wednesday.
