Karua woos Narok residents to vote for Azimio

Azimio La Umoja Deputy Presidential Candidate Martha Karua has asked Narok residents not to elect leaders who have been linked to corruption scandals in their past years of leadership.

Ms. Karua who spoke at Nairegie Enkare area Monday, challenged the residents to choose leaders with a clean development record so that they can improve lives when they get to power.

“I was once a Minister for Water, and I did a lot of work around the country. When my presidential candidate Raila Odinga was Roads Minister, he developed the roads in our country until he was appointed in the African Union (AU) to be in charge of infrastructure,” she said.

Karua said the Azimio team will sit down and analyze the most popular candidates in the area to endorse one person and consolidate all the votes in one basket.

Her sentiments were triggered by the fact that four senatorial candidates out of the eleven who were cleared by Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) are vying on parties affiliated to Azimio la Umoja.

“I thank all those vying for the senatorial seat under the Azimio la Umoja ticket, but I want to remind them that if we have more than two candidates and our opponents have only one, our competitors will carry the day,” she cautioned.

She said they will carry out opinion polls in all the six constituencies in the county to determine the most popular candidate so that he will carry the Azimio senatorial flag.

“I urge all the other candidates to support the one candidate who will be fronted so that we can all move in one direction. A win for one of us is a win for all of us,” said Karua.

The senatorial seat has attracted most competitors in the county as eleven candidates were cleared by IEBC. They are: Cheruiyot Kipkemoi (UGM), Chepkemoi Bett Nelly (DC), Salaton Ole Tompo (Independent), Zakayo Rotiken (Independent), Samuel Tunai (UDA), Kiranto Ole Nabaala (TSP), Gideon Konchela (Jubilee), Godfrey Mapelu ((NOPEU), Meitamei Olol Dapash (UPF), Jimmy Luka (Independent) and Ledama Ole Kina (ODM).

Ms. Karua was accompanied by Murang’a Women Representative Sabina Chege, Mukhisa Kituyi and a host of Narok leaders aligned to Azimio party led by ODM gubernatorial candidate Moitalel Ole Kenta.
