Azimio la Umoja presidential running mate Martha Karua has called for tolerance during campaign rallies.
Karua has asked political opponents to exercise mutual respect irrespective of their divergent ideologies saying the August polls will come and go but Kenyans will still need each other.
“No matter where you stand, we can disagree without insults and heckling. Because after August 9th, we will have to still live with one another,” Karua said in a tweet.
She spoke as she embarked on day three of campaigns since her unveiling as Raila Odinga’s running mate last Sunday.
On Thursday, the Narc Kenya leader took the Azimio campaigns to Chogoria and Chuka in Tharaka Nithi County.
Karua called on leaders to desist from luring the youth with handouts to disrupt their opponents’ rallies.
On Tuesday, Karua was treated to a rousing welcome during her tour of Kirinyaga county.
It was the first time she was visiting her home county after being unveiled as ODM leader Raila Odinga’s running mate.
On Wednesday, Karua pitched camp in Meru accompanied by Agriculture CS Peter Munya and several other elected leaders where they drummed up support for Raila.
A section of political pundits has held that Karua’s pick as Raila’s deputy has a huge potential of attracting three pools of voters to the Azimio camp.
These are the undecided voters, women voters and the integrity vote – those who will vote for Azimio on the basis of Karua’s unwavering stand against corruption and abuse of rule of law.
