Former Mukurweini Member of Parliament and a prominent leader from Central Kenya has claimed that a possible political pact between ODM leader Raila Odinga and his Narc Kenya counterpart Martha Karua is in the offing.

Speaking to Citizen TV, Kabando wa Kabando claimed that Martha Karua is one of the possible candidates being considered as Raila running mate in the next General Elections by Mt Kenya.

“The first name I have heard widely of a possible Raila’s running mate is Martha Karua. The people are talking about her, and it is across the ethnic divide,” he said.

He claimed that the region has settled on Karua since she is being considered as a person who can execute a reformist agenda.

Kabando said that discussions to bring to officiate the pact between the two are currently underway.

He also alluded Karua is also being scouted by One Kenya Alliance (OKA). He claimed that the alliance has proposed that she be ANC party leader Musalia Mudavdi’s running mate in the coming election.

“There are also whispers that a Musalia Mudavadi candidature is still on the table and there is a likelihood they are considering Karua as his running mate,” the former lawmaker added.

Kabondo’s allegations come at a time when Karua has expressed little interest about her looking to be running mate for a presidential candidate. She has consistently said that her focus at the moment is to clinch to unseat Anne Waiguru as the Kirinyaga Governor come 2022 General Elections.
