HMK or Opondi as another blogger calls her now says she will back Raila in run-off, not Uhuru.
I have maintained there will be no run-off so let’s hope our friend forgets about a run-off and declares her support for Awambo now for Round One.
She’ll be in good company and better positioned to take over as our first lady president.
I’ll be her #3 surrogate then
Here is the news story:
Deputy Prime Minister Uhuru Kenyatta suffered a major blow on Wednesday after Narc Kenya presidential hopeful Martha Karua said she will not support Uhuru even in a presidential run-off.
In an interview with one of our local radio station, Karua who is also the Gichugu MP said she will only partner with those with similar political ideologies.
“I cannot go into such coalitions or partnerships just because one is my brother or from my tribe. It must be based on principles and ideologies which put our country first,”Karua said.
She said she may support Prime Minister Raila Odinga because he has a lot of history on reforms though corruption in his office is tainting his image.
On the issue of election illegibility of the five presidential candidates, Karua urged Kenyans to let the court handle the integrity case file against Prime Minister Raila Odinga, Vice president Kalonzo Musyoka, DPM’s Uhuru Kenyatta and Musalia Mudavadi and Eldoret North lawmaker William Ruto, saying the judiciary is currently independent and can deliver an impartial ruling.
