The August 9 election is a moment for women of Kenya to take charge of the leadership of the country, Narc Kenya leader Martha Karua has said.
Her sentiment came shortly after ODM leader Raila Odinga unveiled her as the Azimio coalition deputy Presidential candidate.
In her acceptance speech, Karua welcomed the appointment noting that the move is a big win for the women of Kenya.
“This is a moment for the women of Kenya. It is a moment my Late friend Wangari Maathai would have been proud of. This is the moment to usher more of us into the National and county leadership.”
The Narc Kenya leader went further and expressed her gratitude for being nominated as running mate.
She expressed commitment to working with Raila in delivering a prosperous Kenya.
“I am deeply honoured for the decision to be nominated as the Deputy President candidate of the Azimio Coalition. It is a personal journey but also a national journey.”
“It is only Azimio that can take the people of Kenya forward. We urge you to come and work with us.”
