Narc-Kenya leader Martha Karua has ruled out joining forces with leaders who are tainted with graft allegations and with their names on a number of the country’s high-profile cases of corruption.
Speaking on Friday during her party’s national delegates conference in Nairobi, Karua, also an OKA principal said the party is only keen on working with parties committed to fighting graft, among other vices.
”We want to listen to the people who will tell us how they intend to protect resources. You can have all those wonderful ideas but if corruption is allowed to thrive, Kenyans will continue to suffer,” Karua said at the Ufungamano House in Nairobi.
She added: ”We are a social democratic party, and we will therefore be ready to work with people who want basic needs provided to Kenyans as outlined in the Constitution.”
Martha Karua, Gideon Moi (KANU), Kalonzo Musyoka (Wiper), and Cyrus Jirongo (UDP) are members of the One Kenya Alliance (OKA). The outfit has initiated talks with the Raila-led Azimio Movement to join hands in the August polls.
