Martha Karua Hits Out at Kalonzo as Race For 2027 Heats up

In Azimio la Umoja, the discussion on who would succeed in unseating President William Ruto by garnering a greater number of votes has continued to intensify.

Kalonzo Musyoka, the leader of the Wiper Party, and Martha Karua, the counterpart of the Narc Kenya, are among those who are interested in the party ticket.

Due to the fact that Raila Odinga is anticipated to leave the scene in order to concentrate on the position of African Union Commission, the two are currently engaged in a dispute on who would be the most ideal candidate.


Karua, who served as Raila’s running mate in the general election of 2022, has criticised the leader of the Wiper party and requested that he implement a variation of his strategy.

Karua has issued a statement in which she requests that Kalonzo concentrate on presenting himself as the appropriate candidate rather than dragging her into every political discourse.

“My unsolicited advice to my brother Stephen Kalonzo Musyoka is to focus on marketing himself and leave the decision of who is best to the voters,” she stated.

Karua was compelled to provide a response when it was reported in the media that Kalonzo had openly declared that he was the appropriate candidate and possessed the necessary capabilities to unseat Ruto in the year 2027.

A perceived rift has been developed inside the Azimio party as a result of the competition between the two and other Azimio leaders.

Charity Ngilu, who had previously served as the governor of Kitui, confronted Raila on February 28 and requested that he complete the Azimio house cleaning before he left for the position at the AUC.

“Baba, how have you arranged? How have you planned? I have been told to avoid politics here, but I don’t think I can avoid it, and I know many of you will not ask. I have been with Baba for all my years in politics, so I will ask him. He should explain to us,” said Ngilu.

She added, “When a child leaves their mother or when a father leaves a child, they must plan for them. So, I want to ask you, Baba, organize us well. You organized us in 2002; you must do it again so that we know how to take this country forward.”

In his statement, Raila stated that he would not abandon the house in disarray, but he pledged to back the leaders of the party in the event that he was elected to the position of chairperson of the AUC.

“I am not going away Addis Ababa is only two hours away from Nairobi, I am available and whenever I am called, I will answer. I am ready to work with you people but what is important is that we must ensure what we set out to do is eventually achieved and accomplished,” said Raila.
