Presidential hopeful Martha Karua has called on Kenyans to reject leaders with questionable integrity in the coming polls.
Some aspirants eyeing the presidency, she said, were not honest and should not be elected to lead the country.
The Narc-Kenya leader said some of those people could not be entrusted with the country’s resources because they were been implicated in corruption and crime.
“Some of those asking you to vote for them are suspects and have cases in courts. Others have plundered the country’s economy. How can you entrust the country’s resources with such people?” she asked in a campaign rally in Kirinyaga at the weekend.
She told rallies at Sagana, Kagio, Kianyaga and Kutus towns that the country needed leaders of high integrity and urged Kenyans to vote wisely.
The Gichugu MP said she was determined to win the presidential race and urged voters across the country to elect her.
Ms Karua, who has been the Gichugu MP for nearly 20 years, said she had rich experience in leadership and could effectively be in charge of the country if elected.
Go it alone
She reiterated that her party would go it alone at the polls, stressing that it was strong enough to win.
“I’m not forming an alliance with anyone and I will go up to the ballot,” she said.
She promised to fight corruption, which she observed had contributed to high poverty levels in the country.
The aspirant also pledged to serve all Kenyans without discrimination and create job opportunities if she clinched the top seat.
