Nairobi - CORD will use NARC Kenya leader Martha Karua as they formulate a plan to see her split vital Kikuyu votes come the 2017 General Elections.
Karua, who is under the opposition CORD umbrella, is confident of ensuring that her Presidential bid goes to the end and the main focus of her campaign will be to wow women voters and seek their help.
There is an estimated 3 million Kikuyu votes up for grabs and Karua is confident she can wing over 1 million which would be a huge blow to President Kenyatta.
She is planning to use women to base her campaign.
Her campaigns will target central Kenya where women have for a long time been disenfranchised and ask them to vote for one of their own.
“It is about the women voters. They need help and equality and only a female Presidency will ensure their rights are served,” she told News24.
Karua is confident that the Kikuyu folk will listen to her closely.
“I will campaign and push for the support of Kenyans. At the end of the day, if there are democratic polls and I lose then we will move on since it is a democratic process,” she adds.
Karua is currently planning the finer details of her campaigns set to start in July.
