Martha Karua is one of the sought after puzzle in the Mt Kenya matrix. Both Raila Odinga and William Ruto want a running mate from Mt Kenya for obvious reasons.

Mt Kenya plus Nairobi totals 39% of total votes in the country. It means you get that block you only need 12% from the rest of the country.

When Musalia Mudavadi joined the Hustlers Nation through his Bomas earthquake, the need to have an acceptable candidate from Mt Kenya in Raila’s camp heightened.

They made a poster in which Martha Karua seemed to castigate Musalia for joining Ruto. In the poster she said that she could not believe that Musalia Mudavadi had gone into a coalition with thieves.

Martha Karua has said that she did not make those sentiments and termed it as fake news.
In particular she has blamed Azimio la Umoja for orchestrating the poster.

That means Martha Karua might not be joining Azimio la Umoja. Raila Odinga might have to settle with low budget Peter Kenneth
