Former Radio presenter Andrew kibe has castigated Azimio la Umoja –One Kenya coalition party presidential flag bearer Raila Odinga for picking Narc Kenya party leader Martha Karua as his 2022 presidential running mate.
While dismissing those saying that society is progressive and that women have an equal chance at leadership, Kibe said women are too emotional.
“When I saw Raila picking a woman (Martha Karua for a running mate), I decided that I would not support him… When you tell a woman the truth, she will get mad,” Kibe said in a YouTube post.
The controversial blogger who is currently in the United States (US) further said that the majority of women countrywide do not feel comfortable having a lady boss.
“Even other women tell you that they don’t want a fellow lady to lead them,” Kibe said.
On Monday, May 16, the Azimio la Umoja presidential candidate Raila Odinga, announced that he had chosen former Gichugu MP Martha Karua to serve as his running mate.
Karua emerged the best candidate after flooring 10 other seasoned politicians who were eying for the same seat including former vice president and Wiper leader Kalonzo Musyoka.
The former presidential candidate nicknamed ‘iron lady’ would become Kenya’s first-ever female deputy president in the male-dominated Kenyan political arena should the Azimio la Umoja-One Kenya coalition form the next government.
While defending his choice, the former Prime Minister said he chose a woman to be his running mate because he did not want someone who will compete with him.
“The office of the Deputy President is a workshop of the president; therefore the occupant of the office must not be a competitor of the president but a co-worker,
“That is why the holder of this office must be a woman,” Raila said.
