Kirinyaga bigwigs backlash Karua for her EACJ petition.
Yesterday, Azimio la Umoja deputy, Martha Karua announced that she had filed a petition against the supreme court presidential verdict.
In september she remarked,”Now is not about the election, it’s about justice, the court said our evidence was a hot air balloon, this, can take me to East Africa just to discuss that judgement.”
However, Kirinyaga bigwigs backlash Karua saying this is not the first time she is acting that way, and its high time she concedes.
Kirinyaga Central MP Gachoki Gitari has told Karua to accept defeat and instead play the oversight role of putting the government in check.
Gitari said,”I want to remind the people of Kirinyaga this is not the first time Karua is doing this. When she was defeated by Waiguru she went to all courts, she got justice but she did not become the governor.”
“She has a history; she has been to those courts, with no much benefit. She needs to accept that she was defeated together with Raila Odinga. Let them watch the government, offer oversight and make sure the government is kept on its toes to deliver on its mandate,” Gitari added.
Gitari further pleaded to Martha Karua to go back home, and give counsel where necessary, because she has been in this political arena for long.
Gitari said,” I call upon Martha Karua with respect and humility, we recognise her as our elder, we want her to come back to the villages.”
” Let her remain to be our counsel so that she would be there to shape us, otherwise I want to request her forget about the court process that she has initiated,” he added.
