I am not worried about MARTHA KARUA, I will beat her like a burukenge in 2017 - WAIGURUOther Political News, Politics 01:27
Thursday, November 3, 2016 - Former Devolution Cabinet Secretary, Anne Waiguru, has welcomed the entry of Narc Kenya Chairperson, Martha Karua, into the Kirinyaga gubernatorial race saying she is within her right to run for the position.
In an interview with journalists, Waiguru, who has also expressed interest in the seat, said Karua is free to join the race, though exuding confidence of flooring her in the 2017 elections.
“It is her (Ms Karua) democratic right to seek election. We are not worried as we have the support of the people of Kirinyaga,” said Waiguru
The former corrupt CS announced her bid for the seat in April this year, months after resigning from her position as Devolution CS.
Initially, there had been speculation over Waiguru’s political interest with some political analysts saying that she may run for the Nairobi governorship seat.
When announcing her bid on Wednesday, Karua said that she was better placed to effect change in the County and initiate development projects that would be beneficial to the locals.
