Martha Karua, the iron lady of Kenya, and one leader who loves going against the grain in her way of doing things, beliefs and ideologies stood out during a burial attended by the top political class in the country.
Attending the burial of mother to Peter Kenneth, Mama Rahab Muhuni in Gatanga, Muranga, Ms Karua stood out from the crowd of thousands gathered.
Dressed in a pink African/Kitenge dress, and pink shades to match, Ms Karua stood out from the tens around her in black dresses, trousers and coats.
Secondly, Ms Karua, ‘a no pushover kind of a leader’ sat on the front row, despite not occupying any elected office.
Meanwhile, the Governor of Kirinyaga, Anne Waiguru, who hails from Ms Karua’s County sat in the second row.
Thirdly, Ms Karua was introduced like other prominent leaders to the joy of many Kenyans attending the burial.
Ms Karua has a unique way of creating her space without creating fracas, but with decorum and class.
She remains the iron lady of Kenya, and with the 2022 elections beckoning, the 45 million Kenyans are waiting to see how she throws herself in the political ring this time around.
