Mixed reactions to Karua's first CORD appearance

23 September 2015, 19:00 William Korir

Nairobi - There were mixed reactions to NARC Kenya leader Martha Karua's first public appearance and speech as part of the CORD coalition during the Uhuru Park teacher's rally.

Karua announced two weeks ago that she would join up with the coalition as a friend to the movement and would support their initiatives.

She was present and spoke to the crowd Wednesday in Nairobi during the rally to support teachers and their clamour to be paid at Uhuru Park but her appearance was greeted with silence largely from CORD supporters.

A number still view Karua, a previously harsh rival of coalition leader Raila Odinga as an enemy of the former Prime Minister.

There were a few boos initially as Karua spoke but it was largely subdued.

A number of supporters at Uhuru Park found it hard to accept Karua as one of them.

" She is still an enemy for us after the 2007 election," a leader of the Orange Democratic Movement ODM youth wing that did not want to be named told News24.

Karua was a fierce defender of the then President Mwai Kibaki and was also vociferous as they fought off ODM's claim to a victory in the elections in 2007.

She also stood tall to defend the then government against allegations it worked to cause trouble in the 2008 Post Election Violence.

As for her speech, Karua was on President Uhuru Kenyatta's neck, telling him to adhere to court orders like he had previously asked others to.

" I call on the President to adhere to court orders just like he asked opposition leaders to after the 2013 elections," she stated.
