Martha Karua blasts Ruto, denies endorsing him

By Fay Ngina | November 14th 2018

The National Rainbow Coalition–Kenya (NARC-Kenya) Leader Martha Karua on Tuesday 13 November denied claims that she has endorsed Deputy President William Ruto for the 2022 General Elections.

Ms Karua was responding to a Twitter user who commented on the statement that has been circulating on WhatsApp groups alleging that the NARC-Kenya leader has endorsed DP Ruto.

“There's this statement circulating on Whatsapp that @MarthaKarua has endorsed @WilliamsRuto for president. Those are #FakeNews @MarthaKarua has and will NEVER endorse him. And @MarthaKarua lead's NARC-KENYA PARTY,” said the Twitter User.

Martha Karua said that the Deputy President is the least qualified candidate for the Presidency Job and as such, would never endorse him.

“That is true!I hold the view that @WilliamsRuto is the least qualified for the job and as such would never endorse him. His campaign should desist from dragging my name along,” she posted.

The long statement doing rounds on WhatsApp shows Martha karua praising Ruto and terming his as very humble leader who is fit for Presidency.

“Unlike Raila and his father, Ruto is a very humble leader even before his boss thereby winning his trust. Personally, I may not be comfortable with Ruto's presidency but I think in paraphrasing Victor Hugo's famous quote, he may be an idea whose time has come." Read Part of the statement.

Ms Karua has since dismissed that statement terming it as Fake news.
