Martha Karua denies leaving OKA following the deal with Jubilee and ODM
By Olivia Mungwana.
Narc- Kenya leader Martha Karua has disputed allegations on media platforms that she has left the One Kenya Alliance following her co-principals’ decision to join a grand coalition with Jubilee and ODM.
Karua also skipped the Jubilee and ODM National Delegates Conventions (NDCs), which were held independently by President Uhuru Kenyatta and Raila Odinga on Saturday.
Her absence from two gatherings attended by her co-principals Kalonzo Musyoka (Wiper Party), Gideon Moi (KANU), and Cyrus Jirongo (United Democratic Party) was seen as a sign that she had left the coalition.
Karua, on the other hand, tweeted on Sunday that the comment attributed to her on social media was not genuine.
Karua’s absence at Friday’s news conference, where Wiper Leader Kalonzo Musyoka announced their membership into Azimio La Umoja, drew a lot of attention since she has yet to make a comment accepting or disapproving the move to join Azimio.
Karua’s unavailability was downplayed by Kalonzo, who said she was attending to a serious matters.
Karua stated her party was prepared to form a coalition with like-minded parties ahead of the General Election during the Narc Kenya National Delegates Conference on February 18 at Ufungamano House in Nairobi.
She stated that the party would approach other political parties in a bid to join the coalition.
