It has been a few days since Narc-Kenya Party leader Martha Karua suffered a great loss after the Supreme Court dismissed her petition challenging the election of Governor Ann Waiguru. Claiming that justice was not served at the Supreme court in her appeal to challenge Governor Anne Waiguru’s win in Kirinyaga County through her Twitter account, Karua has claimed that despite the injustice at the highest court in Kenya, she is still soldering on.
“I did not get justice at the court but Aluta continua. The journey to success is long and widing,” Karua tweeted.
Justice Isaac Lenaola dismissed the case directing that each party bears costs of the proceedings at the High Court, Appellate Court, and the Supreme Court.
She vied for the Kirinyaga gubernatorial in 2017 but lost to Waiguru who garnered 153,353 votes (53,87 %). Karua got 116,626 votes (40.97%).
But a section of the online community has trolled Martha Karua for claiming that the supreme court ruling is not fair. Karua has since been compared to Raila Odinga who has a history of disputing elections results.
Moreover, some online users have reminded Martha Karua of the 2007/2008 Elections which Raila Odinga disputed the results but ‘Iron lady’ told them to go and get justice in the court.
Kenyan tweeps have recently come out to reminisce on the days when Martha Karua was the formidable woman she is, and they had different responses.
Whenever I see Martha Karua I remember 2007 Dec. I remember her in a white and black dress and a cowboy's hat. I remember how she and W.S. Ruto nearly fought. She was intimidating everyone. She had power
Then the county lit. fire burned. We have never healed

She was supporting a normal that she believed in at the time just like all the others. One thing I admire @MarthaKarua for is that she will take a stand. Agreeing with her or otherwise is another issue but she will take a stand. Most of these cats follow money & will say anything
