Karua says she didn’t declare support for Uhuru re-election bid

Ms Karua said she did not have a problem with President Kenyatta’s re-election bid.

Speaking on Citizen TV on Wednesday, Ms Karua said she will not necessarily support President Kenyatta and has left each of her party branches to make their choice of candidate for the presidency.

Narc Kenya leader Martha Karua has said she did not declare her support for President Uhuru Kenyatta’s re-election bid.

This comes a few days after she told Kirinyaga residents as she campaigned for the governor’s seat to vote for the President.

She said the 30 branches were free to choose President Kenyatta, Cord leader Raila Odinga, ANC leader Musalia Mudavadi or any other candidate.

Ms Karua said the Kirinyaga party branch and others in the Mt Kenya region had made clear their decision to support President Kenyatta, which she had no problem with.

“But as a party leader, I should be hesitant to make any statements that take away the choice of other branches. I am going to respect that, I am not going to be boxed in,” said Ms Karua.

On her own choice of presidential candidate, Ms Karua said Kenyans should wait and see who she will campaign for in 2017.
