National Rainbow Coalition of Kenya (Narc-Kenya) leader, Martha Karua, on Wednesday, broke her silence regarding a job offered to her by President Uhuru Kenyatta.
Earlier that day, Kirinyaga Jubilee Party chairman, Mureithi Kangara, had reached out to the president asking him to give the former presidential aspirant a job as part of his promise to her.
Taking to social media, Karua clarified that Uhuru had indeed followed through his promise and offered her a cabinet position in 2017.
Without divulging further, the former presidential aspirant explained that she turned it down.
"Maybe I should now disclose that I rejected an offer for a cabinet post in 2017 after the elections," she posted.
She, however, disclosed that the president had some unfulfilled promises to her party.
"To that extent, the promise was fulfilled to me but promises to Narc-Kenya remain unfulfilled," she added.
Mureithi had argued that during the 2017 elections, Uhuru had fielded both Anne Waiguru (now Kirinyaga Governor) and Karua for the race promising that whoever lost would get a state appointment.
He urged the president to appoint her to a cabinet position even after she tried to challenge Waiguru's election and lost at the apex court.
Karua had filed a petition challenging Waiguru's election but the Supreme Court declared that Waiguru was validly elected.
