Gatundu South MP Moses Kuria has fronted NARC Kenya party leader Martha Karua as the best candidate for the country's Deputy President position. 

In a televised interview on Sunday, November 7, Kuria said the main candidates taking a stab at the presidency ahead of the August 2022 general elections are risky for the country, stating that Karua is the most suitable anti-risk factor. 

"All these people (Kalonzo, Musalia, Ruto, Raila) are a risk to this country. I dare say without risk of contradiction. The de-risking factor is Martha Karua. We are safe in the hands of Martha Karua as Deputy President," Kuria said.

In his argument, Kuria stated that in the event any of the four is elected President, Karua is the best candidate who can keep them on track as the Deputy President. 

“When I look around, no one can tie the shoelaces of Martha Karua in terms of making sure the risk these people pose does not interfere in the governance of the country,” Kuria said. 

The Gatundu South MP added that he has had the same conversation with Karua, insisting that the NARC Kenya parry leader has been endorsed by many factions as the suitable running mate for all the presidential candidates. 

“Deputy Presidency is not a seat you vie for, why would we let all of Martha’s experience go down the drain? She can tell us about the Serena Talks, Koffi Annan, the clamor for multiparty politics, or her time as the Minister for Justice, that is experience,” Kuria argued.
