Karua to face off Waiguru, Ndathi for Kirinyaga governor’s seat

Narc Kenya leader Martha Karua has today (Wednesday) declared her intention to vie for the Kirinyaga governor’s seat in the 2017 polls.

Speaking exclusively to Citizen Digital, Karua said she is set to formally make the announcement in Kirinyaga and start campaigning to replace the incumbent Joseph Ndathi in two weeks time.

The former presidential candidate added that she is ready to face off with the already interested parties among them former devolution CS Anne Waiguru, Kirinyaga Central MP Joseph Gitari and Muriithi Kagai.

This announcement comes barely three months after Waiguru announced her interest to run for the Kirinyaga Gubernatorial seat in 2017.

Waiguru, who made the announcement in Kirinyaga Town after receiving a Golden membership certificate for joining President Uhuru Kenyatta’s The National Alliance (TNA) party, said she was ready to face off with Ndathi for the Jubilee Party ticket.

Despite having previously trained her sights on the Nairobi governor’s seat after resigning from the cabinet, sources close to the former Devolution CS indicate that she is currently testing the waters before settling on a running mate.
