Senior Counsel and Second Liberation fighter Martha Karua is celebrating her birthday today.
Karua, a former Azimio La Umoja One Kenya Coalition Party running mate in the August 9, 2022 general election, revealed her real age on Thursday morning.
In a tweet seen by this author, Karua revealed that she is turning 65 today.
“Sixty five today and thanking God for it,” the Senior Counsel wrote.
Kenyans of goodwill did not hesitate to send in their birthday messages.
Karua, a lawyer-cum politician, unsuccessfully ran for Kirinyaga governor seat in 2017 on her NARC Kenya Party. She lost to Anne Waiguru then of Jubilee Party.
In 2022, she was Raila Odinga’s running mate on Azimio ticket, losing to President William Ruto and DP Rigathi Gachagua of Kenya Kwanza.
Azimio challenged the outcome at the Supreme Court, but lost.
Karua has since vowed to seek further justice at the East African Court of Justice.
