NARC-Kenya leader Martha Karua says her dream of leading the country is still alive.
Speaking to Radio Citizen on Monday, Karua indicated that she plans to run for the presidency in the future but she is now focused on the Kirinyaga gubernatorial seat.
“I ran in 2013 and lost, but I still have unfinished business with the presidency, so God-willing one day I will serve in that capacity,” Karua said during the interview.
She unsuccessfully contested for the presidency in the 2013 elections and lost to Anne Waiguru in the race for Kirinyaga Governor in 2017.
“I can serve Kirinyaga County the same way I believe I can serve nationally. There is no small position, serving Kirinyaga people is serving Kenyans,” she added.
Karua, who is under pressure from a section of leaders to go for the presidential running mate position in next year’s, insisted she wants to focus on a seat she can independently fight for.
“A Deputy President’s position is not something you contest, you just hang around and be nice to others, waiting to be called. If you want service stand on your own,” she stated.
