Narc Kenya leader Martha Karua has urged Kenyans to be tolerant of political aspirants visiting their areas to market their manifestos.

She said it’s within the rights of any leader interested in a political seat to campaign and canvass for votes without being harassed.

Speaking in Ndia, Kirinyaga, on Friday, Karua said they will continue to transverse the country to popularise their agendas as they drum up support for Raila Odinga.

She urged Kenyans to give them a chance to share what they have in store for them should the coalition win.

Karua told the youth to shun politicians luring them with money and gifts to ruin their competitors’ meetings.

“Let us not tolerate hooliganism but give all candidates a chance to market their agendas without jeering or disrupting their meetings Respect is not slavery. Let us be wise and disciplined,” she said.

Karua said she will not tire of campaigning for the Azimio la Umoja coalition in Kirinyaga and the entire Mt Kenya region.

The Narc Kenya leader said it is the only honest political camp that has the interests of Kenyans at heart.

She praised a Raila Odinga's presidency saying it will work round the clock in ensuring it delivers on its pledges.

Karua described Raila as a statesman who has demonstrated his patriotism by placing the interests of the country first.

“Through his sacrifice, peace has reigned in the country. He has on various occasions shelved his interest and preferred working alongside various leaders for the benefit of the country,” she said.

“The most recent is the common handshake between him and President Kenyatta.”

Karua urged Kenyans to reject candidates with questionable integrity, to help the country protect the resources which are key to initiating development-related projects.
