Parents of former Gichugu MP Martha Karua burst into songs after Azimio presidential candidate Raila Odinga picked their girl as his running mate ahead of the August polls.
Tending to the press, Martha’s dad, Jackson Karua, said that he was overwhelmed by the information and expressed gratitude toward Raila for confiding in his daughter with such a prestigious post.
He radiated certainty that the Raila-Karua ticket will win the August polls and spearhead the country in the right parth compared to the Ruto-Rigathi ticket.
“I am very excited because I did not expect this. I never thought she would be Raila’s running mate but I praise God for choosing my daughter,” Jackson said.
Karua’s mom, Josephine Wanjiru, noted that her girl had generally represented what she accepted was right since childhood.
As indicated by her, Martha Karua would assist with fighting the runaway corruption in the government if they win the August election.
“Msimamo wake wa kuchagua mambo mazuri ulianza kitambo. Namjua kama mtoto ambaye hapendi ufisadi na matusi. Akifanya kazi na Raila, naona nchi yetu ikienda mbali na ufisadi utaisha,” Josephine Wanjiru.
Martha’s sibling Nyagah Karua couldn’t hold his feelings and just said thanks to Raila for going with the ideal choice by picking Martha as his No.2.
“The feelings are overwhelming; we have never experienced such greatness. I believe being a person of integrity, she will change this country. She has been a tough lady right from childhood,” Nyagah stated.
