However her path has been met by rocks and thorns after joining the United Democratic Alliance. many politicians and pundits expected that the top CEO would vie for the Nakuru senator’s seat on an ODM ticket. this was attributed to the fact that Tabitha Karanja and ODM party Leader Raila Odinga have been long time friends.
Raila Odinga has been present mostly during the important functions of Tabitha to the point of paying her homage regularly. According to source close to the aspiring senator it was Raila who came to her rescue when she was unveiling her new brewery unit and equipment.
In her effort to explain her recent political choice, the renowned Business woman indicated that her friendship with the former premier was personal not political. in is very rare in Kenya for many people to differentiate their friendship but it is a thing that Kenyan politicians seem to have mastered with excellence.
In the coming Days it is expected that Tabitha will come under a lot of political heat. This is due to the fact that many politicians regard her as being deep pocketed. In the Kenyan political scene having deep pockets draws you near to winning an election.
