Narc Kenya party leader Martha Karua has expressed willingness to work with Deputy President William Ruto and other like minded leaders as she charts her path for 2022.
Karua said she is ready to meet Ruto for deliberations that may lead to a possible formation of alliance.
On Monday, Karua met with ANC party leader Musalia Mudavadi and Makueni governor Kivutha Kibwana at a city hotel.
The trio did not dilvuge in detail the agenda of the meeting but it’s reported to have centered on succession politics and state of the nation.
“I met with Martha Karua and Governor Kibwana. We held discussions on the state of the nation and emerging economic, social and political scenarios,” said Mudavadi after the close door meeting.
While responding to a tweeter user who had asked her whether she had any plans of meeting the country’s second in command, Karua responded that she has no qualms meeting anybody and that she was willing to meet with Ruto for any discussion.
Ruto’s main headache is said to be settling on a preferred running mate without unsettling other regions which are angling for this coveted position.
It’s highly likely that Ruto’s running will either come form Western or Mt. Kenya region.
Karua unsuccessfully vied for Kirinyaga gubernatorial race in 2017 coming second to Ann Waiguru.
She challenged Waiguru’s win in court all the way to the Supreme Court but lost.
The former powerful Justice Minister nicknamed ” The Iron Lady” seems to be angling for a say at the national level in 2022.
