NARC Kenya party leader Martha Karua has broken her silence over claims that she will be attending the United Democratic Alliance (UDA) National Delegated Conference.
The NDC set for today, Tuesday, March 15 at the Kasarani Gymnasium in Nairobi will see Deputy President William Ruto crowned as UDA’s presidential flag bearer.
On Monday, March 14, Tharaka Nithi Senator Kithure Kindiki had stated that Karua was among the leaders expected to grace the event.
“Tomorrow will be a game-changing and historic day because the largest party in the country will unveil its presidential candidate, who is DP Ruto. We expect leaders from our partner parties to be present as our guests because our party leader has been a guest in some of their events
“We expect the leader of the ANC party, Mr Mudavadi, Ford Kenya’s Wetang’ula, and the honourable Martha Karua of Narc Kenya. We expect other guests, but we will not tell you their names right now,” Kindiki said.
However, through her Twitter page, Karua termed the claims as fake clarifying that she was not going to attend the NDC.
“The truth is that I am not attending UDA party NDC,” Karua said.
This comes two days after Karua addressed her absence at the Azimio la Umoja National Delegates Conference (NDC) at KICC.
The NARC party leader was the only One Kenya Alliance (OKA) principal who missed the NDC with KANU’s Gideon Moi, Cyrus Jirongo of UDM and Wiper’s Kalonzo Musyoka in attendance.
As expected, the NDC would have served as a platform for Kalonzo to announce his decision to shelve his presidential ambitions in favour of ODM leader Raila Odinga’s presidency.
However, Karua’s voice on the matter remained silent with political pundits perplexed by her absence at the meeting.
“Where is Martha Karua?” Asked veteran journalist David Makali, to which the NARC party leader answered, “Relaxing at home.”
