Narc Kenya party leader Martha Karua has denied that she will attend the United Democratic Alliance National Delegates Conference scheduled for Tuesday, March 15.

This comes hours after Ruto allies said in a press conference that the Narc Kenya leader is among the leaders expected to attend.

When asked on social media to verify whether she will attend UDA NDC on Tuesday, Karua reacted by tweeting "Not True"

Earlier on, UDA legal secretary Edward Muriu told the Star that all officials from Kenya Kwanza will attend the UDA conference.

Muriu said Narc-Kenya party leader Martha Karua, Mwangi Kiunjuri (TSP), William Kabogo (Tujibebe Wakenya Party) among others will attend.

“UDA delegates’ conference will bring all the leaders together including Martha Karua, Mwangi Kiunjuri, Kuria and Kabogo among others,” Muriu said.

Also, Tharaka Nithi Senator Kithure Kindiki confirmed reports that Karua is expected to attend.

“We expect other guests including Martha Karua but we will not tell their names right now,” Kindiki said while addressing a press conference on the NDC on Monday.

The NDC is expected to endorse Ruto for the presidency.

On Saturday, Karua snubbed the Azimio La Umoja meeting where her fellow OKA principals, including Wiper Leader Kalonzo Musyoka and Kanu's Gideon Moi, attended and endorsed Raila Odinga for the presidency.

When asked where she was while her colleagues were signing the deal, Karua tweeted "Relaxing at home".

The UDA NDC will be held at Kasarani Indoor Arena.

The endorsement of Ruto will set the stage for fierce battle considering that Raila was endorsed for the presidency on Saturday.
