Reactions as Martha Karua Pulls a Mammoth Crowd at Gachagua's Mathira Home Turf [Photos]

Kenyans online have been left in mixed reactions after Azimio One Kenya Coalition's Running Mate Martha Karua pulled a mammoth crowd as she arrived at Karatina Town to drum support for Azimio presidential candidate Raila Odinga. Karatina is a Town in Embu, the County where DP Ruto's Running Mate Rigathi Gachagua hails from.

Since she was unveiled as Raila's Running Mate at a colourful event in KICC, Nairobi last Sunday, Karua has been on a mission to drum support for the Azimio One Kenya wing. She began the Mt Kenya tour with a Home Coming rally in Kirinyanga County on Monday, after which she toured several other countries.

It is however the mammoth crowd that welcomed her at Karatina today that has now become the centre of talks in social media after the photos were shared on Facebook.

One Facebook user Giteru Njomo Giteru wondered whether it's high time Deputy President William Ruto should visit the Mt Kenya region alone, arguing that the is already a loss the Kenya Kwanza wing is facing after picking Rigathi Gachagua as Ruto's running mate.

Giteru Njomo Giteru..."Why is Kenya Kwanza not entrusting Rigathi for a rebuttal to Martha Karua? Must Ruto come to the Mt. Kenya region himself to salvage the lost political gains? Consequences of picking a local politician for a national political discourse.

Below are some of the reactions;SOURCE;
