“I’m a chaplain at the Azimio Youth for The Handshake Alliance (YoTHA) and that’s where we had a discussion with the officials to reach out to Martha and implore upon her to work with Mr. Odinga,” Ms. Kirima who boasts of long family ties with Ms. Karua said.

It was after the conversation that the Martha Karua Caucus chaired by former Gatanga MP Humphrey Njuguna was formed to organize events and a series of meetings with Mr. Odinga’s inner team before her unveiling at the KICC as Azimio’s running mate.
