"Kalonzo is alone" Martha Karua Decries Being Sidelined in Kalonzo-Azimio Deal

Indefatigable NARC Kenya Party leader Martha Karua has maintained that her ties with Kalonzo Musyoka under One Kenya Alliance got stained after NARC was deliberately sidelined in the high-profile negotiations that were held at Nairobi State House and Serena Hotel, culminating into Kalonzo's withdrawal from the presidential race in favour of Raila.

While speaking to NTV news anchor Salim Swaleh under the Kigoda Chako segment, Karua however gave her future relations with kalonzo a lifeline pointing that they can continue engaging, but not under the pact they signed a day earlier before Kalonzo went into talks with Azimio.

Since the Azimio deal was signed about 2 weeks ago, Karua who has made clear her plans of contesting for the Kirinyaga gubernatorial seat has been blowing hot and cold regarding Azimio to appoint that speculators intimated she might join Ruto's UDA after the disappointment in OKA.

Karua however dispelled the rumours saying NARC Kenya will desist from forming any other coalition pacts going forward.

Karua's failure to embrace Azimio la Umoja coalition has seen her name dropped out of Raila's potential running mates from Mount Kenya region.

Earlier on, political observers had included her alongside former Gatanga MP Peter Kenneth and agriculture cabinet secretary Peter Munya as Raila's as possible deputies in the vote-rich region where DP Ruto is seemingly commanding the ground.
