Good morning Kenyans.
The weekend is around the corner after a week of pure drama, unexpected moves and brave declarations.
Narc-Kenya party leader Martha Karua grabbed the headlines recently after she was endorsed as the Mt Kenya region spokesperson.
The decision, however, was met with hostility from other leaders from the area especially from the Tangatanga camp.
Kirinyaga Governor Anne Waiguru became the latest leader to take a dig at the veteran politician over her new status.
Waiguru boldy remarked that the once Justice and Constitutional Affairs minister should be content with her new position.
She further claimed that Karua had no business running for the top seat in Kirinyaga as the ex-Gichugu MP would lose to her in the process.
The Mt Kenya region leader also noted that she is ready to defend her seat against any other opposition come 2022.
This brings up the big question, would Waiguru defeat Karua again for the governor’s seat in 2022?
