William Ruto not qualified to be President – Martha Karua

Published

on

NARC Kenya party leader Martha Karua says Deputy President William Ruto is not qualified to be the country’s 5th president.

Taking to twitter, Karua has asked Ruto supporters to stop dragging her name into their campaigns because she would never endorse his State House bid.

“That is true! I hold the view that William Ruto is the least qualified for the job (presidency) and as such would never endorse him,” Karua notes.

Karua was responding to reports doing rounds on social media claiming that she has endorsed Ruto’s 2022 presidential bid.

“Just leave me out of it and I will not be bothered,” she further says.

Karua, who lost the race for Kirinyaga Governor seat to Anne Waiguru of Jubilee party, has always expressed her reservations on the Deputy President style of leadership.

“I am being very upfront, I will not support him (in 2022). Its called choice in democracy,” she previously said on NTV’s Side Bar.

“Mimi sijakubali kamwe! (I do not agree at all) that Ruto will be the next president of Kenya,” Karua said in the past.

‘We started celebrating Eliud Kipchoge’s win at my brother’s graveside,’ Yvonne Okwara narrates

Published

on

Citizen TV’s Yvonne Okwara is among the millions of Kenyans who celebrated Eliud Kipchoge’s historic win in Vienna, Austria last Saturday.

The multi-talented media personality revealed that Kipchoge put a smile on her face after making history by finishing a marathon under two hours.

Speaking to her fellow panelist (News Gang) on Citizen TV on Thursday, Yvonne Okwara narrated how Kipchoge turned her sorrowful moments into a celebration.

Eliud Kipchoge

On the day Eliud was making history in Vienna, Okwara and her family were at her brother’s graveside holding a memorial service for him.

Emotional Yvonne narrated her story as her co-presenters listened.

This is a very personal moment for me. I lost my brother a year ago and Kipchoge’s feat found us at the most unlikely place. I will get emotional but I’ll try and tell this story.

On Saturday, October 12, we had a memorial for my deceased brother by the graveside, but we had our phones with us. We literally delayed the occasion as we were to start it at 11 am, ‘ Okwara narrated.

Just after Eliud Kipchoge finished the race, they started celebrating at the graveside instead of mourning.

My uncles, aunts, mum and cousins went wild with celebrations after Kipchoge won. We were literally celebrating by the graveside,” she added.

The family went ahead to celebrate their loved one’s memorial service.

But they were not the only celebrating Kipchoge’s success, there was another family at the same cemetery, which celebrated.

There was another family at the other graveside. They came by our side to celebrate then went off to pray. What shocked me was that they never prayed at all.

One guy shouted 1:59 twice in honor of Kipchoge and then recited the Catholic prayer (In the name of The Father The Son and The Holy Spirit) and they walked away celebrating. That was a simple hilarious prayer in an unlikely place around the graveyard,’ she explained.

Yvonne concluded by thanking the marathoner.

I want to thank Kipchoge for making such a hard moment that easier,” she said.
