NARC-Kenya leader Martha Karua has come out to reveal why she refused an offer to serve in President Uhuru Kenyatta’s cabinet.
Karua has said that Uhuru wanted to nominate her to the cabinet immediately after the 2017 polls.
“May be I should now disclose that I rejected an offer for Cabinet post in 2017 after the elections. To that extent the promise was fulfilled to me but promises to Narc-Kenya remain unfulfilled,” Karua tweeted last week.
She would elaborate this further during an interview on K24 TV on Sunday evening saying that Uhuru was not specific on which position he wanted her to serve in his administration.
But why did she turn down Uhuru’s cabinet offer?
Well, she said she refused to work with Uhuru since Jubilee ‘rigged’her out in the Kirinyaga gubernatorial contest in favour of Anne Waiguru who was the candidate for the Jubilee Party.
“He didn’t offer a specific post but he said the general area. I told Uhuru I was not interested in Cabinet because Jubilee rigged me out…They rigged at all levels. Jubilee rigged big time,” she said.
But even after this, Karua says that their relationship with Uhuru remains cordial, although they do not talk much as she does with opposition chief Raila Odinga.
