Senior Counsel Martha Karua is not your everyday politician in Kenya.
She has strong convictions and does not mind the loss of immediate gratification to stay true to her core values.
She also has uncommon political support from Kenyans across the country, making her popular beyond her home County, Kirinyaga.
Speaking on News Gang Citizen TV, leading journalists said, “When I think of Martha Karua, I do not see her in the confines of the Kirinyaga county boundaries but a national leader, a national figure.
She is enjoying support from grassroots women groups, Maendeleo ya Wanawake Organisation (MYWO), women leaders in the 26 parties in the Azimio la Umoja One Kenya Coalition, and Kitui Governor Charity Ngilu.
Others mentioned as probable female candidates for Deputy President are Kirinyaga Governor Anne Waiguru, and Kandara MP Alice Wahome.
Who will break the glass ceiling and become the first female Deputy President in Kenya?
