Karua terms appointment a historic moment for Kenya.


Newly-unveiled Azimio La Umoja Presidential running mate Martha Karua has assured of her readiness and capacity to be the country’s second-in-command should Raila Odinga clinch the presidency in August.

Speaking on Monday after being announced as Odinga’s running mate in the upcoming General Election, Karua termed the appointment as a collective honor and a historic moment for women in Kenya.

While listing notable female figures who she said paved the way for women to fight for a place in leadership, Karua said her nomination was a chance for more women to be included in positions of power across the country.

She further added that Odinga had already outlined her roles as deputy president if the duo gets into State House, vowing to support the Azimio leader in weeding out corruption, poverty, disease and ignorance.
