Narc Kenya Party Leader and Kirinyaga gubernatorial candidate, Martha Karua, has called upon residents of the county to turn-out in large numbers to vote for President Uhuru Kenyatta in next month’s General Election.

Speaking on Saturday when she joined the UhuRuto Express in Kirinyaga, Ms Karua, who is facing stiff competition from Jubilee Party’s former Devolution CS Anne Waiguru, said that she will fearlessly rally the masses behind President Kenyatta, just like she did for retired President Mwai Kibaki in the 2007 polls.

“On the polling day, come out in large numbers and vote for President Kenyatta. After casting your vote, go back to the villages and help those who haven’t voted yet to come and do so,” said Martha Karua.

“We want President Uhuru vote tally to be way ahead of Raila’s so that they, NASA, don’t raise issues of how the vote were rigged,” added Ms. Karua.

Kipipiri lawmaker Samuel Gichigi eulogized the deceased Interior Cabinet Secretary, Joseph Nkaisserry, as a ‘dedicated servant of the people’ and called upon Kenyans to grant the fallen hero respect by maintaining peace before, during and after the August 8th polls.

“We need to change the Constitution to accommodate assistant ministers to avoid a gap like has happened where the president had to ask Education CS Fred Matiang’i to act as interior CS,” said Gichigi.


During the rally, Gichugu MP Njogu Barua accused the High Court of making an uninformed ruling by cancelling the presidential election ballot papers printing tender awarded to Dubai-based Al Ghurair Printing Company.

“I therefore urge IEBC to do whatever it takes to ensure there are enough ballot papers for all positions in time come August as we, Jubilee and Kenyans, are ready to take opposition leader Raila home,” said Mr. Barua.

Maragua MP, Kamande Wambuku, decried of the low voter turnout that was witnessed in Central and Eastern regions, alleging that  close to half a million voters did not turn to vote in the 2013 polls, a vice that should not be repeated in 2017.
