“Your poise, mastery of subject matters, and staying calm even when provoked were impressive. I congratulate my able deputy and team member Martha Karua. The Azimio family stands proud of your performance during last night’s debate.” Said Raila.

Martha and Gachagua who were the second set of candidates to respond to the questions started off with an impressive introduction before the gloves were off.

Kenya Kwanza’s Deputy President candidate Rigathi Gachagua accused Karua of being a state project in a well-calculated move by President Uhuru Kenyatta who he accused of planning to extend his stay in power.

Responding to the allegations, Karua noted that the President is the chairman of the alliance and that his position will continue to exist if they clinch the seat come August 9th.

On matters of graft, Karua denied owning a piece of land illegally including that in Kirinyaga she is accused of benefitting her family. She even dared the county government of Kirinyaga to produce evidence that implicates her in the said land.

Gachagua recalled a past investigation that allegedly implicates Karua in a graft case back in the UK. Allegations that Karua claimed were false, as she confirmed that the amount in question was received as a donation and did not go through her account.
