Kenyan politician and advocate of social justice Martha Wangari Karua is celebrating her 64th birthday today.
Karua taking to social media posted a short message that read:
“Today I celebrate 64 years of hits and misses all providing valuable lessons which I hope to apply in service of Kirinyaga people and by extension Kenya,” she wrote.
This comes days after Karua alongside Kuria and Kiunjuri, launched a Mt Kenya party leaders caucus to push for the region’s interests ahead of the 2022 general elections.
The three leaders have been meeting other leaders of different parties in the region in a bid to consolidate a united front with ex-Gatanga MP Peter Kenneth and ex-Kiambu Governor William Kabogo being the latest entrants into the unity talks.
The meeting is seen as part of the efforts spearheaded by the president to win over the region’s leadership, currently split between him and Ruto, to ensure that Mt Kenya goes to the next general elections united behind a common course.
Karua also declared her intentions to dislodge governor Waiguru from Kirinyaga’s top seat come 2022 after conceding defeat in the previous election.
