Kenyans Gang up Against Ruto's Aide For Claiming That Azimio is Popularizing Raila Through Karua

The race for August Presidential Election has narrowed down to two top candidates, Raila Odinga and Deputy President, William Ruto who are both determined on winning it. Raila chose NARC-Kenya Party Leader, Martha Karua as his running mate while DP Ruto settled on Mathira Member of Parliament, Hon. Rigathi Gachagua.

The choice of running mate has a huge effect on the August Presidential election and Martha Karua is seen as a reformist who will help in the fight against corruption. Hon. Gachagua on the other hand is facing numerous corruption charges in the Kenyan Courts.

@EmmanuelTalam This Azimio mouthpiece is now trying to sell @RailaOdinga behind @MarthaKarua just like it tried using president Kenyatta. This too will fail. Just sell Raila as is! @OleItumbi

Emmanuel Talam who is a close aide of Ruto in the Communications Department has responded to a Newspaper Headline placing Martha Karua ahead of Hon. Gachagua. Mr. Talam has accused Azimio of trying to market Raila through Martha Karua. Kenyans have however criticized Talam as they reinstate that a running mate is a key consideration when choosing a President.

Some fo their reactions are as follows;

@Meshacksam Why would an educated man support Ruto and Gachagua ????

@Maureenbuluma Sasa unataka Azimio Wafanye siasa vile unataka? Utakonda

@KagwiDi They go together. No Ruto without DO, and no Baba without Martha. It's a package 📦!

@BArunga Stop blaming us for choosing Geoffrey Gachagua, we are innocent.

Tittymosiot Why the panic @EmmanuelTalam. Azimio will capitalize on your weaker Gachagua and @MarthaKarua will triumph. Bado mapambano

@resseoas Why are guys afraid of Gachagua? It's the best choice according to your leadership.

@owesioasa Let's compare the two deputies as you told us, Ruto was on the ballot with Uhuru from 2013 -to 2017 when we wanted to impeach him. Ruto and Gachagua are on the ballot

@realdismass Why are you afraid of the DO being compared with Martha🤔? Aren’t they seeking office as DP? Isn’t it in order for Kenyans to know who they are? Aren’t their names going to be in the ballot?
