The parents and siblings of Martha Karua believe if (she) alongside Raila Odinga win the August election, the duo will change this country and spearhead it in the right direction.

Odinga picked the NARC Kenya leader as her running mate on Monday, May 16, 2022. 

Addressing the press, Martha's father Jackson Karua said that he was overwhelmed by the news. 

“I am very excited because I did not expect this. I never thought she would be Raila’s running mate but I praise God for choosing my daughter," Jackson said.

On the other hand, Karua's mother Josephine Wanjiru noted that her daughter had always stood for what she believed was right since childhood. 

Josephine mentioned that her daughter would help fight the runaway corruption in the government if they win the August election. 

“Msimamo wake wa kuchagua mambo mazuri ulianza kitambo. Namjua kama mtoto ambaye hapendi ufisadi na matusi. Akifanya kazi na Raila, naona nchi yetu ikienda mbali na ufisadi utaisha," Josephine Wanjiru.
