Panic in UDA over Karua’s threat to recover grabbed land

By Justus Karanja

Panic has hit United Democratic Alliance (UDA) after the Azimio One Kenya Presidential candidate Raila Odinga pledged to restore peace and repossess grabbed land in Laikipia county if elected in the August 9 polls.  

Raila who was accompanied by his running mate Martha Karua and Azimio allied leaders  toured Laikipia and  Nyeri counties where they urged voters to come out in large numbers to vote for Azimio on polling day.

 The former prime minister pledged to improve living conditions of Kenyans, adding he has the best plan for the economic liberation of the country.

While in Laikipia, Raila promised to repossess the disputed Agricultural Development Corporation (ADC) Mutara farm so that the land is reverted to public use for the benefit of area residents.

Karua said corruption is the biggest problem bedevilling the country, promising that their administration will end the vice to ensure better living standards for all Kenyans.

And now UDA leaders are in panic after the High Court ordered the forfeiture of Sh200 million which presidential running mate Rigathi Gachagua could not account for.

After the ruling, Gachagua cried foul claiming the judgment was a blatant attempt to curtail Kenya Kwanza's bid to ascend to the presidency in the upcoming August 9 poll. 

He claimed, without evidence, that the judgment was hastily delivered after he defeated Karua in the deputy president's debate. 

But Gachagua is now broke and cannot finance UDA campaigns even in Nyeri.
